How a few huge corporations control the news media and the news. Brief media-history lessons alternate with close-ups of particular stories.

This week: corporate mergers yield near-monopoly control of the news. And the story of reporter Gary Webb. Webb was destroyed by the big corporate media after exposing the CIA's role in the crack-cocaine trade in the US.

Plus an essay by Paul Krugman on why the latest proposed merger--Comcast and Time Warner Cable--is another bad idea.
The documentry "Shadows of Liberty" was written, directed, and produced by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Plilippe Tremblay. Adapted to radio by K.D.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "bad influence") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Commentators in the movie include Robert McChesney, Amy Goodman, Julian Assange, Norman Solomon, Janine Jackson, Dan Rather, and others.

This installment of New World Notes is available also on The Internet Archive (
