What do We Have a Right to Know? By Danny Schecter: here

Facts and Understanding Are Often In ConflictLiving In a Culture of Delusion Leads to Denial, Ignorance and WorseBy Danny SchechterWhat do we have a right to know? In this web-based age, where we can Google almost everything, you’d think we would be better informed than we are.We have Freedom of Information acts and a President who has promised transparency, offering some details on what he’s doing on an easy to access website. And yet, there is much more that we still don’t know, and maybe never will.At long last a report on CIA abuse of detainees came out, but years after the fact, and in a heavily “redacted” form – i.e. censored.
