ABOUT THE FILM

Freedom of the press is under threat. News is censored, controversial stories are covered up and global conglomerates control what we read and hear about. Shadows of Liberty takes a bold look at the American media landscape, where powerful corporations call the shots, distorting and compromising the core values of a free press. But how did a handful of corporations come to control most of the information? Looking into media manipulation over the years, renowned journalists, activists and academics share their stories about how the media monopoly operates and affects our society, making a strong case for urgent media reform.
