This week on CounterSpin: The Israeli defense minister says that major protests like those on Israel’s borders May 15th require new responses; but what if anything is new about US journalists’ approach to Palestinian protests and rights? Journalist Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada will join us to talk about that.

Also on the show: We’ll play part of Glenn Greenwald’s address at FAIR’s recent 25th Anniversary celebration at Symphony Space in New York City. The Salon writer shared his thoughts on the media with a standing room only crowd; he shared the stage with Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore.
