Award-winning investigative journalist Peter Byrne joins Project Censored director Mickey Huff in conversation about his latest series, five years in the making, to be published by the Pt. Reyes Light weekly from November through January:
“BUSTED! Breast Cancer, Money, and the Media
…a ten-part investigative series on breast cancer in Marin County that aims to demystify breast cancer risk. It reveals how scientific data can be manipulated to promote non-scientific agendas. It deflates a quarter century of hysterically headlined news stories on a non-existent cancer epidemic in Marin County.
Come out for an intriguing evening deconstructing the phenomenon of Pinkwashing while exposing corruption and secrecy in both the public and private sectors surrounding this important public health story!
