The Media and Human Rights 2

Media and Human Rights  2, The

Here we learn about the problems and restrictions that are being put upon the media. In 1948 most nations in the world, including the United States, adopted the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which includes the right to freedom of speech in Article 19. This program asks the question, "does the public have a right to know?" We hear from journalists and media personnel, including William A. Orme, Jr., Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists; media analyst Andrew Tyndall; Patrice Barrat, founder of Internews Europe; American media mogul Ted Turner; UN Correspondent Ian Williams; Assistant US Secretary of State John Shattuck; Pulitzer Prize winning Newsday reporter Roy Gutman; media tycoon Rupert Murdoch; and media research analyst Robert Deutsch, as they voice their opinions and concerns based on this question. There are also interviews with MIT Professor Noam Chomsky and musical artist Jackson Browne to learn their thoughts on the importance of media and human rights. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
