Video and internet journalist Abby Martin makes a return visit to the program, and speaks with Mickey about how corporate media obfuscates the truth to serve U.S. power and its allies, in Palestine, Yemen, Venezuela and elsewhere. In the second half of the show, Chase Palmieri of Tribeworthy.com revisits the program, following a recent remark from celebrity entrepreneur Elon Musk that there ought to be a way for the public to rate the work of journalists. Palmieri explains how Tribeworthy.com does exactly that, and summarizes how to use it.

Project Censored - 04.24.18

On this week's show, we present a recent talk, "Giants - The Global Power Elite," given by Peter Phillips at Sonoma State University this past March. 
Extending the ideas of C. Wright Mills to the 21st century, Peter Phillips contends that a few hundred corporate managers and billionaires now control 
the majority of the world's wealth, and thus are today's ruling "transnational corporate class" ('TCC'). He identifies these corporations and individuals 
in a forthcoming; the speech is a summary of the ideas in the book.
Peter Phillips is Professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University, and a former director of Project Censored.
