New World Notes - Censored Stories 2014
This week on New World Notes: radio program #308, January 28, 2014, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. (and on the following Wednesday from 8:30 to 9:00 p.m.), host Kenneth Dowst takes a look at recent sins of omission and sins of commission of the mainstream news media.
For omission, we look at some of the stories in the latest report by Project Censored.
For commission, we explore the rash of recent stories warning of shortages of particular products--Butterball turkeys, Sriracha sauce, and now Velveeta!
Plus a clip from Project Censored's movie, a news story in song by David Rovics, and an update on the great toilet paper shortage of 1973.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.
New World Notes reaches California. The show is now carried by nonprofit, community-supported station WGIG-FM 104.9 in Modesto. Broadcast days and times vary.
WHUS 91.7 (Storrs, CT) has changed its program schedule. The station now broadcasts New World Notes on Thursdays at 10 AM. See the complete schedule.
You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both A-Infos Radio Project and (from #90 onwards) the Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chronological listing of available installments.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want--and what they're trying to make us settle for.
