For the first segment of the show, Mickey and Michael speak with independent journalist Dave Lindorff. 
In a recent Salon.com article, Lindorff contends that corporate-media denunciations of "fake news" 
are also intended to undermine the credibility of non-corporate alternative media.
Then Nolan Higdon joins the show as a guest, for a discussion of how to teach media literacy, 
despite neoliberal education doctines that deemphasize critical thinking and civic participation.
 
Program Notes:
 
Dave Lindorff is a widely-published independent journalist. His work is collected at www.thiscantbehappening.net
Nolan Higdon teaches communications and history at several colleges in the San Francisco Bay area.
