Dan Rather’s Keynote at SXSWi

Though I wasn’t at South by Southwest, I can now tell you that this keynote speech was rather extraordinary. Among other things, Dan Rather suggested (as posted earlier) that perhaps journalism has “in some ways lost its guts” in recent years and is in need of “a spine transplant.” Alot of emotion poured into this keynote (with questions from firedoglake‘s Jane Hamsher) and quite worth listening to the entire hour. There’s more audio from this year’s SXSWi sessions here.

Press “play” to listen.
