Paul Loeb Media Resources

Some alternative magazines, websites and other information resources that I find particularly useful for social change.

Alternet
http://www.alternet.org/
Draws on different alternative publications and also posts their own content.

 

 

Alternative Radio
[Hour-long alternative radio program featuring leading radical thinkers and activists]

http://www.ourfuture.org/
[Brings together lots of good perspectives and organizations for a progressive agenda]

Independent Media Center
http://www.indymedia.org/
Founded during the Seattle WTO protests, provides alternative breaking coverage of major national and international demonstrations, including eye-witness reports and videos. Reports tend to be extremely subjective, so need to be taken with a large grain of salt, but it's an interesting site to get alternative perspectives.
