Project Censored commemorates 45th anniversary of the Kent State University shootings

Share

Today is the 45th anniversary of the Kent State Shootings, in which National Guardsmen fired in a group of student protesters at Kent State University in Ohio, killing four and wounding 9 of the students. We listen to an excerpt of the Project Censored Radio Show from last week,hosted by Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips, with an interview with Joseph Lewis, who was wounded by two gun shots at Kent,and Laurel Krause, whose sister Allison was one of the 4 killed in the shooting.

Then we listen to WEDU’s Florida this week from last Friday. Controversy still swirls around the Florida House’s decision to adjourn early without reaching a consensus with the Senate on expanding medicaid to cover hundreds of thousands of Florida’s working poor. Panelists Include: Former State Senator Paula Dockery, Political Strategist Barry Edwards, USF St.Petersburg Government Professor Darryl Paulson, and ABC news Senior Reporter Brendon Mclachlan
