hadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control.Added to the calendar on Friday Oct 31st, 2014 4:25 PM
Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values.
In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone.
*Shadows of Liberty reveals story of journalist Gary Webb who worked for San Jose Mercury News and uncovered major story linking CIA to the drug trade. *
