PROJECT CENSORED 2012 SPECIAL with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips

Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch and Per Fagereng of Fight the Empire co-host a special program with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored to talk about the release of Censored 2012, which Celebrates 35 Years of Project Censored.

In the last 35 years, the so-called mainstream media have been co-opted into a propaganda machine for the transnational corporate power structure, which serves a US/NATO Military Industrial Media Empire instead of We the People.

Project Censored resists the goals of global empire at the expense of human rights, we resist top down managed news in favor of a truly free press, and we resist censorship in all its guises.
