(N.Morgan) 2016 will go down in history as the year internet censorship was fully launched.
Targeted censorship that was designed to hide some of the most vital stories of the year, to keep the masses in the dark about the true issues taking place in our country and globally.
“It is impossible to fully measure the impact the failure of the press has had on society. How many thousands, or perhaps millions, of lives would have been saved if the press had done its job instead of ignoring or covering up the problems.” -Dr. Carl Jensen, co-founder of Project Censored (1929-2015)
In the video below, Global Research does a Year in Review, in which they discuss the stories we all missed, due to politically skewed censorship.
Our first guest, Andy Lee Roth, is the Associate Director of Project Censored, a media research program which fosters student development of media literacy and critical thinking skills as applied to news media censorship in the United States.
Every year, PC releases its picks of the most censored news stories of the previous year. Roth provides an overview of the Top 25 most censored stories of 2016 in our first half hour.
We next hear from John Schertow, founder and lead editor of Intercontinental Cry, an online media source of news of worldwide Indigenous struggle and resistance.
Schertow shares his picks for the most under-reported stories involving Indigenous peoples.
