It’s the End of the World as We know it and I feel FINE #35 (Klein)

Updated: full speech below

Naomi Klein’s speech at the National Conference for Media reform was not included on the conference website. subMedia contacted Free Press, the organizer or the conference, to ask why Klein’s speech could not be found online, and the person explained that Free Press is a non-profit organization and that I should reefer to the disclaimer on their website which reads:

“Despite our best efforts, we feel that some of our speakers encroached on electoral space during their remarks at the National Conference for Media Reform. It is not in our interest to disseminate these recordings. We are reviewing all of our video content and will add that which we determine to be free of electoral statements to this page.”

I don’t quite understand how these things work, but whatever. Two sources have told me the reason Free Press did not include the speech was Klein’s criticism of Barack Obama. It would be pretty fuckin lame if it were true.

But fuck it, I got a hold of a copy of the speech and here it is.

  4. That is not Naomi Klein’s entire speech at the NCMR — she started out with comments on Hillary. I was there and I heard the whole thing but I can’t find a copy of it! I would like to play it in my podcast and I have been waiting and waiting for to put it on their website and they won’t. It’s because Klein mentioned politicians by name, which they weren’t supposed to do … and also because they are non-profit. I also think it’s because she criticized Obama, but she criticized Hillary even more. So– I’m still looking for the whole thing including the beginning. If anyone has it, please let me know.
