The 2017 New England Muzzle Awards are out. The awards are given to those who stood in the way of freedom of speech in the previous year.
The awards were started nearly a decade ago by the now-defunct Boston Phoenix.
The Muzzle Awards are curated by civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate and WGBH News media analyst Dan Kennedy.
Kennedy spoke with WGBH All Things Considered host Barbara Howard about this year's awards.
