John Gear Law Office, LLC, is proud to be among the first 10 underwriters for the new, just-about-to-be-on-the-air, volunteer-run and community powered radio station in Salem:
KMUZ, a non-commercial, nonprofit station with 100% local management, leadership, and programmers.
JGLO has been supporting the nonprofit that owns the KMUZ license since before it was "born" -- the founding bylaws for the Willamette Information, News, and Entertainment Service (WINES) were even written and approved right here on High St. in Salem.
Consider joining me as a supporter or underwriter for KMUZ. Great communities have locally owned media!
In case you missed last night’s premiere of HOT COFFEE, you can still catch this important film.
HBO and HBO2 are re-airing the film several times over the next few weeks (all times Central):
Tune in for the HBO premiere of Hot Coffee -- a documentary about the fictions and false alarms that threaten the civil justice system.
Former Public Justice Foundation President Susan Saladoff produced and directed the film as an article of faith and a labor of love. Years of hard work paid off for her when Hot Coffee was screened at this year's prestigious Sundance Film Festival. Shortly after that, HBO optioned the film.
Hot Coffee is a compelling and provocative documentary that everyone will find enlightening. For more information about Hot Coffee on HBO, click here.

Two Thursdays from now, on February 10, the Salem Progressive Film Series will present "Dirt," a film about the least appreciated part of the three components of the biosphere (Land, Air, Water, or LAW).
John Gear Law Office, LLC, is proud to contribute to the Salem Progressive Film Series so that they can continue bringing provocative, intelligent, and important films to Salem's Historic Grand Theater.
The reality behind the infamous "McDonald's Coffee Case" is that almost everything you hear about it is industrial-strength BS, parroted and amplified by an advertiser-controlled media that is only too happy to repeat simple lies and disinformation rather than delivering a more complex truth that might make some advertisers unhappy. The greatest part of the Internet is that it lets people like us share information without having to pass through the corporate-owned media's filters.
Amy Goodman's "Democracy Now" program is a rare oasis of fearless and fierce reporting. She has a segment on the "coffee case" that ought to be repeated far and wide.
