Watch the full documentary online at KCETLink's special "Shadows of Liberty" website.

Ninety percent of American media is controlled by five big, for-profit-conglomerates, creating a media monopoly that manipulates our political, economical, and social worlds. "Shadows of Liberty" reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups, and corporate control.

Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes an intrepid journey through the darker corridors of the American media landscape, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists, and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone.

Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, "Shadows of Liberty" poses a crucial question: Why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? We're left in no doubt: media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental. With Danny Glover, Julian Assange, Dan Rather, Roberta Baskin, and many others.

Saw the tail end of this interesting show....will it be repeated?
Also if such a big hoax was pulled off regarding Iraq's nuclear weapons of mass destruction......WHO WAS TOO BE BLAMED FOR THE TWIN TOWERS DESTRUCTION?.....please find out the truth behind that and why did Tower 7 also get destroyed? Was that also a hoax so we'd go into war as a means to create jobs for the masses and wealth for the corporations suppling what was needed?......Of course I don't expect a truthful answer from anyone.....only time will tell in 25-50 years. But I'd like to read what you have to say....

Yes, five conglomerates control our media. However, why Isn't it ever mentioned that the owners of these conglomerates are Zionists?

I would like to applaud you for your courage to put this show on the air...we only saw the last half, but couldn't get over such a controversial topic you would have the guts to put the truth out there. So wish you would repeat it again and again......I can't find it for this Sunday as the schedule says 10PM on Sunday the 8th.
Thank you again.
