In this week’s program, we hear a speech given in March by Mickey Huff as part of the annual Social Justice Week lecture series at Sonoma State University in northern California. Mickey’s topic was “Fake News and the Truth Emergency.” In his speech, he takes note of the deep historical roots of the idea of ‘fake news,’ but also warns that new media technologies threaten to make it harder and harder to distinguish truth from fabrication. As well as hosting the Project Censored Show, Mickey Huff is the director of Project Censored, and a faculty member in the History department at Diablo Valley College in Contra Costa County, California.
