The latest Project Censored Show features a recording of a panel discussion from this summer’s Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival, held in Washington DC. Mickey and Project Censored’s Associate Director, Andy Lee Roth, moderated a discussion with journalist Kevin Gosztola and Rebecca Vincent of Reporters Without Borders. This panel, “Guilty of Journalism: The Political Case Against Julian Assange” examined how the imprisonment and prosecution of Assange for his work with WikiLeaks will have a negative impact on journalists and publishers. The final ten minutes of the show is an update with Kevin Gosztola explaining to Mickey the latest developments in the Assange extradition case.
Kevin Gosztola is an independent journalist, and the publisher of ShadowProof. He’s also the author of “Guilty of Journalism: the Political Case Against Julian Assange,” to be published in early 2023 by The Censored Press. Rebecca Vincent works at Reporters Without Borders, a non-profit organization that advocates for press freedom worldwide.
