In observance of Banned-Books Week (Sept 22 - 28) Mickey and his guests discuss 
some of the obstacles placed in the way of Americans' freedom to read and learn, notably conservatives' 
efforts to keep unfavored books out of school libraries, or even to cancel authors' speaking engagements.

the Project Censored Show:

 

Host: Mickey Huff
Producers: Anthony Fest & Dennis Murphy

 
 
Authors John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski are the guests for the hour; to speak about their recent book
The Watchdogs Didn't Bark. The product of years of investigation, it begins with the questions: why were
two of the September 11 hijackers, already in the US and on the FBI terrorist watch list, not apprehended 
long before the attacks took place, and why was no one in the US government held accountable? 
The authors find the answers in a complex web of spy agency rivalries and coverups. 
Mickey and Chase spend the hour in conversation with Danny Haiphong, co-author of the new book 
"American Exceptionalism and American Innocence." He explains his assertion that throughout U.S. history, 
"fake news has been the only news disseminated by the rulers of U.S. empire.”
This week's program is an overview of the biases and dangers of corporate media. Freelance journalist Chelli Stanley
explains why corporate media is not "mainstream." Then Nolan Higdon returns to the show to discuss the new
book he and Mickey have written, "United States of Distraction: Media Manipulation in Post-Truth America."

Notes:
 
This week's guests are two investigative reporters:
First, Will Carruthers explores the surprising ties between a utility company lobbyist, 
a charitable foundation and a local newspaper.
Then, in the wake of Jeffrey Epstein's death, Whitney Webb shares the information she's gathered 
about his connections to politicians, spy agencies in the US and Israel, and organized crime.

On this week's program, we hear a speech by the legendary 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, 2018 at 
Sonoma State University in northern California, as part of the campus's annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
Peter and Mickey spend the hour in conversation with Carol Anderson. 
Her book, "White Rage," chronicles the history of white resistance and obstruction
to African-American equality, from the Reconstruction period to modern times.
 

Notes:
 
Carol Anderson is Professor of African-American Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. 
Her previous works include "Eyes Off the Prize" and "Bourgeois Radicals."  
Author and public intellectual Henry Giroux returns to the program to discuss his newest book, 
"American Nightmare: Facing the Challenge of Facism." Among his observations, he explains 
why the rise of Donald Trump was not an aberration, but the outcome of forces that have 
been at work for decades. 
This week's guest is author and law professor Dan Kovalik; he speaks about US interventions 
around the world, past and present, and the cost Americans pay to maintain the gigantic US military machine. 
 
Dan Kovalik is a retired labor-union attorney, and now teaches at the University of Pittsburgh Law School.
He is also a prolific author, and has recently had four books published on the Skyhorse label, all dealing with 
US interventions around the globe. 
In this week's program, we hear a speech given in 2018 by Mickey Huff as part of 
the annual Social Justice Week lecture series at Sonoma State University in California.
His topic was "Fake News and the Truth Emergency." In his speech, he took note 
of the deep historical roots of the concept of 'fake news,' including the origins 
of public relations in the early 20th century with Edward Bernays.
