with Chris Hedges
The Jimmy Dore Show on Mar 31, 2022
Award-winning journalist and bestselling author Chris Hedges has been effectively silenced by YouTube, with six years’ worth of Hedges’ show, ”On Contact,” deleted from the platform simply because the program appeared on the Russian-affiliated network RT [America]. As a result, hundreds of episodes featuring interviews with a wide range of guests, the vast majority of which had nothing to do with Russia, have been removed from public view.
Jimmy speaks with Chris Hedges about this act of corporate censorship, and the danger posed by placing this level of power in the hands of a few multi-billion dollar tech firms.
