This week in New World Notes, radio program #248, December 4, 2012

The Censored News

Mickey Huff, Director of Project Censored, gives an impassioned speech about how the media support Established Power--by producing news stories that are biased, censored, and full of omissions and false assumptions. And by suppressing news stories that would call official policies into question.

Complementing Huff's talk, we'll read selections from Project Censored's top stories of 2011-2012--seemingly-important stories unreported by the corporate media. One example: fallout from Fukishima caused 14,000 deaths in the U.S.

Plus introductory coments (and a very recent eample of censored news) by K.D.

Notes, credits, & links

Huff spoke in September 2012. I have shortened his speech for this radio broadcast. A video of the entire speech is available at Summaries of the Top 25 Censored Stories of the year are available there too.

In my introduction I discuss a very recent censored story about child casualties in Afghanistan--recently brought to light by independent journalist Dave Lindorff. His article is here:

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "What, me worry?") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both and (from #90 onwards) The Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chrono listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page, and each page has links to the recorded audio. See the gray sidebar on the right ("CONTENTS [Links]") for a table of contents.

Series overview:
Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want ... and what they're trying to make us settle for.

Back in September 2011, the news media did their best to ignore Occupy Wall Street. Afterwards, they disparaged it. Finally, they were forced to take it seriously.
