In this week’s program, we hear a speech given in March by Mickey Huff as part of the annual Social Justice Week lecture series
at Sonoma State University in northern California. Mickey’s topic was “Fake News and the Truth Emergency.” In his speech, he took note of
the deep historical roots of the idea of ‘fake news,’ but also warned that new media technologies threaten to make it harder and harder
to distinguish truth from fabrication.
As well as hosting the Project Censored Show, Mickey Huff is the director of Project Censored, and a faculty member in the History department
at Diablo Valley College in Contra Costa County, California.
