This week on CounterSpin: George Bush cheered the new government in Iraq as “a turning point in the struggle between freedom and terror,” but the White House’s optimistic view of Iraq is meeting with some media resistance, even in mainstream outlets. Independent journalist Aaron Glantz will join us to talk about the coverage and the situation in Iraq.
Also on the program: With some of the people making anti-immigration arguments these days it’s pretty clear their position rests on fear or plain old prejudice. But what about people who say they only oppose immigration because of the negative impact it has on struggling US workers? We’ll hear from Doug Henwood, of the Left Business Observer, on the economic side of the immigration debate.
