Freedom to Read week: Time to look at damaging impact of corporate media censorship

Photo: BloggingCanadians.ca

I've been deeply involved in journalism for 40 years, and I've never experienced a time like this when mass media corporations are feeding us such distorted, one-sided news and opinion.

Corporate media is helping to facilitate a total change in the ideological fabric of the county into a nation of mean-spirited people who are starting to believe that extreme right-wing policies are the only solutions to our problems. Left behind are compassion, a sense of what’s in the public interest, and social justice.
