Our guest this week is Andrew Bacevich, professor of international relations at Boston University. Dr. Bacevich is the author most recently of The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War (2005).
Our guest this week is Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored. Project Censored is a media research group out of Sonoma State University which tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media. They recently released the 2006 edition of their book.
The WILL-AM Fall Pledge Drive begins this Sunday, and we have an extended edition of Media Matters, from 12-2pm. Joining us will be John Nichols, Nation columnist and regular Media Matters guest, as well as a number of other former guests.
This week our guest is Larry Beinhart, author of Fog Facts. Fog Facts are the important things that nobody seems able to focus on anymore than they can focus on a single droplet in the mist. They are known, but not known; the sort of things that journalists and political junkies know, but somehow the world does not.
This week our guest is Robert Jensen. A regular guest on the show, Jensen is the author of The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism, and White Privilege, which has just been released by City Light Books.
