State of the Free Press, 2023
Public opinion is deeply shaped by what we read, see, and hear. It is why the role of a free press is critical to democracy – only a well-informed electorate can best govern themselves. But given the skewed coverage of critically important stories in today’s corporate-dominated media landscape, it’s no wonder that our democracy is in deep trouble.
Each year the group Project Censored gathers together the most censored or under-covered stories of the past year and edits them into a book and today we’ll learn what some of those stories were from the past year.
Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
