Program Title: Repeat - Project Censored 2016 Media Freedom Summit Round Table
Description: The Project Censored’s Media Freedom Summit was held on October 21st and 22nd, 2016, at Sonoma State University, where the non-profit media watchdog was founded.
The Round table discussion featured four prominent figures who have contributed in profound ways to our current understanding of media’s role in shaping the public’s understanding of the challenges facing our society and our world. They touched on the distorted messaging around the 2016 US election campaign, the independent reporting that derailed a military assault on Syria, the 'conspiracy theory' meme, the career assassination of journalists dissenting from allowable narratives and more!
