Welcome to the Best Of CounterSpin for 2010. We think all of our shows are important, and shed some light on how media work and the stories they tell. But, at the end of the year, some stories stand out — for the omissions or confusions of corporate media coverage, or for the impact of that coverage, and often, for how the failures of elite media illustrate the important growing role of independent journalists, who every day seem to become less ‘alternatives’ to the big guys and more like their replacement, for those in search of serious critical reporting.

This roundup does not include every important story or even storyline from the year, but we hope you enjoy our revisit to a few of the topics and guests it’s been our pleasure to bring you.
