Counterspin - April 1, 2005

Bob McChesney on FCC and Indecency, Daniel Ellsberg on Whistleblowers
This week on Counterspin: the FCC is on an anti-indecency crusade that’s already led to broadcasters self-censoring such controversial things as a nude lithograph on Antiques Roadshow. Who’s fighting back? And what happened to all those other issues of media reform we were talking about just last year? We’ll hear from author and media historian Bob McChesney on that story.

Also on the show: Daniel Ellsberg’s leaking of the Pentagon papers 35 years ago exposed the US government’s cynicism and disregard for the human cost of the Vietnam War. Today Ellsberg joins us to talk about two important current whistleblower stories the media is neglecting.
