In his “Welcome to The Defender” post, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. described The Defender as “an online news site to evade official censorship, to report fact-based news and sponsor the kind of honest debate that terrifies the new generation of corporate and government commissars.”
This week, Kennedy delves a little deeper into the “why” behind The Defender in the below-featured video.
“Corporations don’t want an informed public,” Kennedy says. “They don’t want a public that reads the science, or asks too many questions … We need to find a common ground, and that common ground is science. That’s why we’re building this institution, The Defender.”
