Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we take an in depth look into the failure of American journalism.
Our first hour starts with a full length speech by Robert McChesney who lays out the structural forces that are responsible and that indicate the level of fundamental change needed to transform the role of the press to one useful to a democratic society. We conclude the show by reading chapter 4 of Disciplined Minds, entitled Assignable Curiosity. This chapter is about the hidden control over professionals' apparently independent work - how funding overtly and covertly directs and limits scientific research. Much like journalists - what is studied, explored or spoken about has much to do with the interests of those who have the money, rather than the needs of society as a whole or the personal interests of scientists themselves.
