EXTRA, EXTRA! Democracy Now: “Shadows of Liberty”: New Film Explores How Corporate Control of Media Eroded the Freedom of the Press

Using individual cases of journalists whose attempts to tell their stories have been muzzled by corporations and the government, the film shows how a corporate-controlled media can silence the truth about issues ranging from war to labor practices.
