Flanders and Leopold also talked about the media reform project Truthout has been involved in for the past several months, supported by The Media Consortium, a collective of progressive news organizations, that aims to raise awareness about media reform policies, such as net neutrality and the proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile and the ongoing debate about net neutrality.
