the Project Censored Show:


Hosts: Nolan Higdon, Nicholas Baham III, Aimee Casey

Producer: Mitch Scorza
Project Censored's annual "top 25 most censored stories" are gleaned from hundreds of stories nominated by students and faculty at participating campuses. On this week's show, four students from San Francisco State University discuss stories they've discovered and documented in their research; these stories involve issues ranging from clean energy to the propagation of gun culture in high schools. 
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.  
In this week's program, we hear a speech given in March by Mickey Huff as part of the annual Social Justice Week lecture series 
at Sonoma State University in northern California. Mickey's topic was "Fake News and the Truth Emergency." In his speech, he took note of 
the deep historical roots of the idea of 'fake news,' but also warned that new media technologies threaten to make it harder and harder 
to distinguish truth from fabrication. 
As well as hosting the Project Censored Show, Mickey Huff is the director of Project Censored, and a faculty member in the History department 
at Diablo Valley College in Contra Costa County, California. 
On this week's program, we hear a recent speech by the legedary political activist and consumer-rights advocate 
Ralph Nader. Nader outlines some of the most critical problems facing Americans " including exorbitant military spending, 
out-of-control corporations, and thousands of annual deaths in the workplace, or from lack of health care coverage. 
But then he names some individuals who've made a difference in recent U.S. history, explains what students 
can accomplish on campus, and how voters can hold legislators accountable. Nader spoke on March 5 at 
Sonoma State University in northern California, as part of the campus's annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
