For today’s special WORT Birthday Boost episode, we catch up with friends of the show Mickey Huff and Andy Lee Roth from Project Censored. They fill us in on their new publication, Censored 2019: Fighting the Fake News Invasion, which features under-reported stories from the past year and highlights independent news organizations that are doing truly great work. Over the course of the hour, they emphasize the role of local and independent media along with the importance of being a critical consumer—and supporter!—of news and information.
