With the November election drawing near, media analyst Nolan Higdon returns to the Project Censored Show
to explain how fake news and biased media undermine democracy, and why individuals should be "media citizens"
rather than "media consumers."
 
Then in the second half-hour, Nico Perrino joins the program to explain the results of a new study of freedom-of-speech
on US college campuses, based on a survey of 20,000 students at 55 schools. At which schools is freedom of speech most respected, and what policies should every college follow to protect it?

Nolan Higdon teaches history and media studies at California State University, East Bay, and writes extensively
