An impassioned speech by MICKEY HUFF, Director of Project Censored, on how the media support Established Power--by producing news stories that are biased, censored, and full of omissions and false assumptions. And by suppressing news stories that would call official policies into question.
Also, we'll read selections from Project Censored's top stories of 2011-2012 unreported by the corporate media. (One example: fallout from Fukishima caused 14,000 deaths in the U.S.)
Huff spoke in September 2012. I have shortened his speech for this radio broadcast. A video of the entire speech is available at www. projectcensored.org. Summaries of the Top 25 Censored Stories of the year are available there too.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "What, me worry?") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
In my introduction I discuss a very recent censored story about child casualties in Afghanistan--recently brought to light by independent journalist Dave Lindorff. His article is here: http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/10/18/children-under-attack-in-pakistan-and-afghanistan/
