Project Censored - 11.05.19

Facebook recently announced, "Facebook News," a partnership between the social-media giant 
and established corporate-media outlets, including the New York Times. Does this arrangement 
suggest an enhanced effort to keep independent journalism and nonconforming opinions out of social media?

 
Notes:
 
Andy Lee Roth is co-editor (with Mickey) of Project Censored's annual "Censored" books. 
He also oversees the 'validated independent news' program, collecting hundreds of stories from which the "Top 25" are selected.
