3 months 2 weeks ago
The Global Research News Hour opens the new year with a review of some of the stories that went under-reported or under-examined in 2017. We first hear from Andy Lee Roth, Associate Director of Project Censored about the media project's list of the Most Censored stories of 2017, and about their Censored 2018 publication. We next hear from John Schertow, Editor in Chief of Intercontinental Cry about the most suppressed stories involving Indigenous peoples and Indigenous struggle around the world. Finally, Patricia Elliott, Associate Professor at the University of Regina's School of Journalism, and a faculty advisor with Project Censored, examines two Canadian stories that went under-reported, and about the factors contibuting to suppression of relevant stories north of the 49th parallel.

The Thunderbolt: TB 180105 The Dictatorship of the Refrigerator, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
This week’s radio show starts off the new year with a lesson on how to be an activist! (It’s a fun job — but somebody’s gotta do it!) Then, we reveal how Americans are educated just enough to not realize how uneducated they actually are. After that, we point out that humans have an amazing ability to accept insanity as normal when insanity becomes normalized — especially since if they ever rationally faced the insanity then they would probably go insane. Next, we fulfill our duty to utterly terrify you by pointing out how with recent advances in technology, then very soon the 1% may not need us to build their world for them any longer. (And you know their usual policy toward what they consider to be ‘useless mouths’ — i.e. someone that does not produce profit for them.) Then, for the feature piece this week, we describe how David Patraeus — ex-head of the CIA — came right out and admitted that they are going to start using the ‘smart grid’ and ‘smart appliances’ to spy on us. Now your refrigerator will be spying on you right along with your phone, your computer, your car, and your alarm system, etc. There will soon be nowhere that is safe. The Thunderbolt is likely to broadcast news that will rock your socks. Beware.
