Trending in recent weeks is the idea of so-called 'fake news' on the internet, with impacts in the political realm, such as the unexpected election of Donald Trump.
The 'fake news' of concern is on sites which purportedly disseminate 'Russian propaganda.'
This week's episode of the Global Research News Hour examines the way US elite interests are deliberately instigating uncertainty about independent and particularly dissident news media.
First we hear from Toronto-based journalist and media critic Barrie Zwicker about the PropOrNot site which is purportedly 'outting' the major sources of this fake news, and whether America is returning to an age of McCarthyite 'witch-hunting' and whether a similar phenomenon may be materializing in Canada.
We will then hear an interview recorded by CFUV's Chris Cook for Gorilla-Radio with journalist and broadcaster Dave Lindorff about the recently passed Intelligence Authorization Act, and the growing cold war tensions.
Finally, fellow broadcaster and journalist Stephen Lendman, host of the Progressive News Hour examines the 'fake news' meme in the context of the recent presidential elections, and the significance for US foreign policy and the future of journalism.
