Beyond the Classroom presents "Shadows of Liberty"

When: Wednesday, October 23, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. The film takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots. Their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. Renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered. The film poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? We're left in no doubt - media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental.
."...Offers a brilliant, riveting and deeply distrubing insight into the corporate control of American media and public opinion. It is a clarion call to citizens to take back the First Amendment before it is lost to them forever" - Geoffrey Stone, University of Chicago.
