Bill Berkowitz writes that the Center for Media and Democracy's "sleuths of spin John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton have exposed how corporate shills and government spokespersons manipulate the media and undermine democracy for more than a decade," and are now "setting about an ambitious - yet necessary - undertaking: reinventing journalism." Berkowitz interviews Center founder Stauber about recent media scandals involving PR, payola, and fake journalists. They also discuss SourceWatch, "an information source that is truly 'of, by and for the people,'" and other ways the Center works to further media democracy.
