As journalists, CDM is taking the lead on the much-needed conversation about censorship and suppression of information that leads to societal ills that harm every citizen.
"The dark side of Covid-19 is the emergence of government leaders and state agency actors chipping away at citizens' rights. The upside of COVID-19 is how transparent and arrogant these leaders revealed themselves. They have taken these assaults to a new level. The only way to respond is for those of us who believe in the freedom of the press and freedom of speech to ignite a conversation exposing all of the insidious ways in which these state actors are censoring and suppressing the much needed discourse that sustains a democracy. We at CDM are committed to further expose their tactics, call them out, and offer the space to give a voice that brings these assaults to a screeching halt," states Christine Dolan, CDM's Senior Editor.
To kick off American Conversations "Censorship & Suppression" Host Christine Dolan interviews Tony Lyons, Skyhorse Publishing's President and Co-Founder of American Values 2024, a political action committee supporting the presidential candidacy of Robert F.
