This week on CounterSpin: The budget battle over Planned Parenthood's federal funding produced more than the average dose of media misinformation. And clues, mostly missed by the media about the GOP's actual agenda. We'll talk with journalist and blogger Amanda Marcotte about Planned Parenthood.

Also on the show: Standard & Poor's issued a "negative outlook" report on the U.S. debt, warning that the country's credit could be in jeopardy in the next few years. If true this could seriously threaten the ecomony. But is it? And what about S&P's political timing? We'll talk to journalist Dave Lindorff about the S&P announcement.
