Many people are frustrated and angry at the downsizing of Oregon's biggest newspaper, The Oregonian. 

But where are the real decisions on Oregonian management being made? And how does our state fit in with the national issue of media consolidation?

On May 2, from 5-6pm, join KBOO investigative reporter Robin D. Ryan and others for a journey through back rooms, FCC hearings and a whole lot of money on 'Who Owns the O?'

Featuring Robert McChesney, former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, Tracy Rosenberg of the Media Alliance and more.
