In June 2008, Mark Read of Deep Dish TV and Isabel Macdonald interviewed Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ, who presides over one of the toughest deportation dragnets in the country. They discussed policing tactics, immigration, and media.
For 22 years Deep Dish has been a laboratory for new, democratic and empowering ways to make and distribute video. It has been a hub for linking thousands of artists, independent videomakers, programmers, and social activists. The network has produced and distributed over 300 hours of television series that challenge the supprssion of awareness, the curruption of language, and the perversion of logic that characterizes so much of commercial media. With humor, passion, creative flair and very low budgets, Deep Dish TV artists and producers have developed provocative video series exploring issues that profoundly impact our lives.
