Dissenter Weekly Update: Boeing 737 Max Whistleblower, CPJ Says Assange Isn’t A Journalist

In this week’s “Dissenter Weekly Update” episode, we highlight the Boeing 737 MAX whistleblower, who testified before the House Transportation Committee.

We highlight a whistleblower at Miami-Dade County jail, who was reportedly barred from talking to a Miami Herald reporter about brutality in the facility.

Later in the episode, we talk about how the United States government would like a staunch WikiLeaks opponent to testify against the “Vault 7” leaker, and we cover the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and their annual list of jailed journalists that excluded WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

We launched the show on November 21, and this is our fourth episode. It is hosted by Kevin Gosztola, managing editor at Shadowproof, and Brian Sonenstein, publishing editor at Shadowproof, joins him each week to help him navigate through stories.

The show streams live every Thursday at 4 pm ET. It is around a half-hour. Following each broadcast, we archive the episode and share it widely.
