Bring CounterSpin to Your Station
—Ben Bagdikian, author of The Media Monopoly
CounterSpin is FAIR’s weekly radio show, hosted by Janine Jackson. It’s heard on more than 150 noncommercial stations across the United States and Canada.
CounterSpin provides a critical examination of the major stories every week, and exposes what the mainstream media might have missed in their own coverage. Combining lively discussion and a thoughtful media critique, CounterSpin is unlike any other show on the dial.
CounterSpin exposes and highlights biased and inaccurate news; censored stories; sexism, racism and homophobia in the news; the power of corporate influence; gaffes and goofs by leading TV pundits; TV news’ narrow political spectrum; attacks on free speech; and more.
