MEDIA PRESS RELEASE:

The Global Research News Hour - Media As It Should Be

Serious journalism does exist, if you look for it.

by Stephen Lendman
Wednesday, 29 April 2009
The Global Research News Hour broadcast bypasses interviewing the usual pundits and media celebrities. Instead, they interview news story-appropriate academic scholars, historians, authors, activists, human rights lawyers, noted journalists, economists, media critics, progressive web editors, and others. The GRNH airs them daily in-depth.
Self-promotion? Fair enough, but for a good purpose - to introduce more people to what the GRNH provides:
  • real democracy advocacy live, on-air, daily;
  • an antidote to government and corporate propaganda;
  • a force against war, injustice and inhumanity;
  • championing universal freedom;
  • a voice for social justice, human rights, and beneficial change - of, for, and by the people;
  • a bulwark against Wall Street, corruption, unfettered greed, fraud, and dirty government;
  • an advocate for our most precious First Amendment rights without which all others are at risk;
  • a scrupulously free, fair, open, vibrant, and vital on-air resource, Monday through Friday on Republic Broadcasting.org with all programs archived for easy listening;
  • real news and information unavailable through the major media, on-air or in print;
  • cutting-edge discussions on world and national issues with distinguished guests rarely, if ever, heard or read through the dominant media; and
  • following Project Censored's tradition of discussing "important (world and) national news stories that are underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media."

The GRNH is committed to what James Madison meant by: "A popular government, without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Ignorance begets servitude. Knowledge is empowering. The GRNH is committed to it on-air, and through the Centre for Research on Globalization and its web site, Global Research.ca.

On December 10 in Mexico City, the Mexican Club of Journalists awarded Global Research.ca, and its distinguished editor, Michel Chossudovsky, its highest honor for producing the best research and news website at an international level.

The ceremony was broadcast live on Mexican TV, attended by prominent Mexican and international journalists as well as TV and radio producers, academics, Members of Congress, government representatives, and members of the diplomatic corps.

Global Research.ca and the GRNH are collective endeavors, freely offered to readers and listeners, and dependent solely on their help for support. Editor Michel Chossudovsky writes:

At the end of the "Bush regime," with a new administration in office, "what changes await us," and how can we prepare?

"Indeed, in these troubling and uncertain times marked by war and economic crisis, 'progressive change' is the one thing we can all agree is necessary.

How can the global economy be rebuilt and democratised with a view to curbing the enrichment of a powerful economic minority, while addressing the real social needs of the World's people?

What can we do to cease, terminate, and eradicate the violence and human suffering inflicted through warfare and unrestrained militarization?

Social and economic change, through mass action and meaningful political reform, begins with the decision to stay informed and aware.

Since 2001 (and 2008 respectively), Global Research (and the GRNH have) been delivering critical analysis to its readers (and listeners) as well as direction for the questions we should be asking."

Both are independent and supported solely by readers and listeners. No private or public funding is accepted. All contributions go toward producing content. Your help keeps these vital services functioning, growing, and working for a free and open society.
