Reading of George Orwell's Classic Work '1984': From the Democracy Now! Archives

'On the 100th birthday of author and journalist George Orwell, we spend the hour featuring excerpts from his classic work, '1984,' the book that introduced the terms 'Big Brother,' 'thought police,' 'newspeak' and 'doublethink.' We broadcast portions of excerpts of 1984 read by Charles Morgan and June Foray and produced by Paul Vangelisti over a quarter of a century ago for Pacifica Radio. We also feature clips from President Bush, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Fox New's Bill O'Relly, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Sen. Robert Byrd and broadcast footage of Donald Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam Hussein in 1983.'
