New Era For Liberal Media?

It may be a new era for liberal media both nationally and locally.

Nationally, the victory of President Obama has also meant victories for MSNBC, the left-leaning cable news network. In the three days after the election, for the first time, more viewers aged 25 - 54 watched MSNBC than its right-wing rival, Fox.

Locally, Ithaca's community radio station, WRFI, is successfully soliciting volunteers for a major fundraising and public awareness campaign. The goal of the station is to create more local programming while retaining popular national shows, such as "Democracy Now!".

The first public meeting for the campaign was last Monday. Tonight is the second. The campaign is scheduled for the first week in December.
