Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press
Edited by Kristina Borjesson, Foreword by Gore Vidal



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a 10-page summary of the fascinating accounts of 18 award-winning journalists from the book Into the Buzzsaw. All of these writers were prevented by corporate media ownership from reporting major, incredibly revealing news. Some were even fired or laid off. These journalists have won numerous awards, including several Emmys and a Pulitzer Award. Help us to create a more responsible media and a better world. Spread this news across the land.

And why was the US the only major industrialized nation to approve the use of this controversial genetically engineered hormone? P. 40, 41

The mainstream media is mostly guilty of the lie of omission. Try and figure out what they're not covering. That's the thing to watch.
