This week, as part of our 2017 summer series, we air audio from a round table discussion presented as part of Project Censored’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

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!

Abby Martin, who functioned as moderator, is host and creator of the Empire Files, a weekly investigative news program for Telesur English. She is also the past host of RT's Breaking the Set.

Mnar Muhawesh is the founder and Editor in Chief of Minneapolis-based Mint Press News.

Marc Crispin Miller is Professor of media, culture, and communication at New York University, and the author of several books and articles on American media and US election-rigging.

David Talbot was the founder of salon.com and the best selling author of The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government.
