A look at recent sins of omission and sins of commission of the mainstream news media.
For *omission*, we look at some of the stories in the latest report by Project Censored. For *commission*, we explore the rash of recent stories warning of shortages of particular branded products--Butterball turkeys, Sriracha sauce, and now Velveeta!
Plus a clip from Project Censored's movie, a news story in song by David Rovics, and an update on the great toilet paper shortage of 1973.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Music added: David Rovics, "Oil Train" (from If I Had a Hammer)
