Download MP3

This week on CounterSpin: Since the suicides of three detainees at the
Guantánamo Bay detention center the US military command has banned all journalists and lawyers, turning what was a remote prison revealing little news into an informational black hole. We'll talk to Barbara Olshansky, lead counsel of the
Guantánamo Global Justice Initiative at the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Also on CounterSpin: Now that the deadline for enrollment in the White House's new Medicare drug plan has passed, will media get beyond the "Republicans claim/Democrats disagree" approach to the story? We'll hear from journalist and author Trudy Lieberman on what media should be telling us about that new Medicare program.
