The State of the Free Press and Civil Liberties in the US

Welcome to the Morning Mix, this is the Project Censored Show on Pacifica Radio, I’m Mickey Huff in studio with Peter Phillips. Today we analyze the state of the free press and civil liberties in the US. We’ll kick things off with Sue Wilson, founder of the Media Action Center, about the private censorship of public airwaves and the FCC’s possible ruling deciding whether or not right wing radio is “bonafide” news; then legendary free press proponent and documentary filmmaker John Pilger joins us from London for commentary on the state of the free press as well as his latest film project; and we close out today’s show with Beau Hodai, author of the new study published by the Center for Media and Democracy, “Dissent or Terror: how the nation’s counter terrorism apparatus, in partnership with corporate America, turned on Occupy Wall Street.”

Hosts: Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips. Broadcast from Berkeley–Hard hitting News and Public Affairs with hosts Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored on KPFA’s morning show. The mission of Project Censored is to teach students and the public about the role of a free press in a free society and to tell the News That Didn’t Make the News and Why. Broadcasted Live on KPFA & No Lies Radio/Pacifica Radio on June 7, 2013.
