Free Speech TV
Free Speech TV is one of the last standing national independent news networks committed to advancing progressive social change. As the alternative to television networks owned by billionaires, governments, and corporations, its network amplifies underrepresented voices and those working on the front lines of social, economic, and environmental justice. Free Speech TV was launched in 1995 and is owned and operated by the nonprofit Public Communicators Incorporated, and has run commercial-free since then with support from viewers and foundations. The network offers progressive daily news programs, independent documentaries, and special events coverage. In 2013, FSTV began conferring with public television stations to gain over-the-air and cable carriage in major urban markets. Recently, FSTV's television footprint has grown to more than forty million homes.
