Eclectablog’s Chris Savage charts a new course

In this two-parter, Michigan’s Chris Savage discusses how his Eclectablog has evolved from a personal journal into a widely respected progressive blog that has often been featured on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. A supporter of the Occupy movement, Savage explains why he thinks the mainstream media are making a mistake by ignoring the importance of providing analysis and context in their reporting. In these videos, Savage also explores various economic models that offer the promise of sustaining bloggers who want to report news that matters from a progressive point of view.

Both videos were recorded by Bonnie Bucqueroux at the Gone Wired Cafe in Lansing, Michigan, on Sunday, November 27, 2011.
