Project Censored's 40th Annual Media Freedom Summit

What an inspirational and information packed event!  With leaders in alternative media and educators from across the country the Media Freedom Summit was an event to remember! Media scholar Mark Crispin Miller, Abby Martin of the Empire Files and RT, Mnar Muhawesh of Mint Press, Mickey Huff, Peter Phillips and Andy Lee Roth of Project Censored were just a few of the luminaries that made this event so entertaining and informative.  Over the two days there were fourteen workshops to participate in from Student Strategies to Constructive Media Literacy; Community Engagement to Representational Framing.  We were encouraged to check out and the Global Critical Media Literacy Project.  Taking notes and getting questions answered filled the two day event.  I look forward to writing up all my notes for reference.  Some of the books that were recommended, in addition to Censored 2017, included, Capitalism 3.0, Tribe by Junger, Super Survivors, Conspiracy Theory in America, Cruel and Unusual by Miller, and Propaganda by Bernays.  The Media Freedom Summit is a must see for all those interested in freedom of the press.  I'm already looking forward to next year's MFS.

Now with the books in stock the Peace Panel Project is offering Censored 2017 for 27% off retail and older Project Censored annual publications for half off.  Contact us today to reserve your copy.
