Fresh tech attacks on dissent / Corporate media weak on womens’ issues _on Project Censored

Coming up every Tuesday and Saturday at 8 am Pacific * 11 am Eastern * 16:00 GMTProject Censored
Mickey’s first guest, Alan MacLeod of Mint Press News, speaks about Pay Pal’s sudden cutoff of service to Mint Press, Consortium News, and other journalism sites that publish antiwar opinions and analysis; Mickey and Alan also discuss the recent trend of individuals from the U.S. / NATO security establishment being given influential posts at Facebook, Tik Tok, and other social media platforms. In the second half of the show, Steve Macek and Shealeigh Voitl explain their recent Ms Magazine article on corporate media’s failures in coverage of womens’ issues, especially gender violence. They also comment on the recently-leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court, which would reverse the Roe vs. Wade decision, thereby giving states wide latitude to criminalize abortion.

Alan MacLeod is a media critic, a senior staff writer at Mint Press News, and has also contributed to many other publications. Steve Macek teaches Communications and Media Studies at North Central College in Illinois, and is co-coordinator of Project Censored’s Campus Affiliates Program. Shealeigh Voitl is a Journalism graduate of North Central College, and a research associate at Project Censored.
