Project Censored - 01.29.19

Author and editorial cartoonist Ted Rall is the first guest; he explains the latest developments
in his legal battle with the Los Angeles Times, and the wider problem of how big corporations 
now use anti-SLAPP statues to stop less-powerful plaintiffs from having their cases heard by juries.
In the second half of the show, Robert Manning and Kenneth Dubroff introduce a new grassroots-based 
nuclear-disarmament advocacy group they created, and how they hope to influence decision-makers.
They point out that the nuclear nations' arsenals of today are even more dangerous than those of the 1960s.
