Higher Education and Academic Freedom Under Attack.  We look at the corporate attack on pubic education via the Trojan Horse of the so-called “Reform” Movement and we examine the state academic freedom in the US as we speak with a professor who has challenged the status quo on official narratives in recent history.  We'll hear from Prof. Adam Bessie on GERM Warfare; Kenn Burrows from San Francisco State University talks about new paths in education. At the bottom of the hour we’ll turn our focus to academic freedom and how the corporate media frame and shape public perception on issues from education to controversial current events.  We’ll speak with communications professor Dr. James Tracy about his recent writings on the Newtown shootings and the role of a free press; and attorney Robert Shibley of FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, on broader issues addressing academic freedom and the First Amendment.
