Mickey and Peter devote this week’s show to discussions about the media, including both critiques of corporate media
and a briefing on the latest work from Project Censored. Their first guest, Rob Williams, speaks about fighting corporate fake news,
and introduces his suggested additions to the ‘propaganda model’ set forth by Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman in 1988’s “Manufacturing Consent.”
Then Telesur contributor Abby Martin explains the corporate media’s gross misrepresentations of the conflict in Venezuela. Finally, Andy Lee Roth
joins Mickey to discuss some of the stories and ideas in “Censored 2018,” Project Censored’s just-published compendium of the latest underreported stories.
This is a rebroadcast of the Project Censored Show of October 2, 2017.
Rob Williams teaches at the University of Vermont and also works with the Action Coalition for Media Education and the Global Critical Media Literacy Project.
Abby Martin hosts “the Empire Files” show on Telesur, and formerly hosted “Breaking the Set” on RT.
