Assange case update / Censorship by algorithm

Online journalist Kevin Gosztola returns to the program to deliver another update about the Julian Assange extradition case in the UK, and its disturbing implications for press freedom.
Then we hear a rebroadcast of an interview earlier this year with Andy Lee Roth, where he spoke about how algorithms are replacing human editors in deciding which stories appear, and which are excluded, on the platforms of Big Tech companies such as Google and Facebook.

Kevin Gosztola is the managing editor of the news web site www.Shadowproof.com He has covered the Julian Assange legal proceedings in the UK from the beginning, as well as other press-freedom and whistleblower cases.
Andy Lee Roth is associate director of Project Censored; he holds a PhD in Sociology from UCLA, and has published widely on media issues. He’s also co-coordinator of Project Censored’s Campus Affiliates Program.
