Best of CounterSpin 2012

 

 

Every week CounterSpin tries to present information or perspectives on the news that help us think critically about both the story and the storytellers. We're proud to feature the voices of activists, researchers, reporters and artists who have not just something to say but something you might not hear elsewhere.

We hope all our shows are useful, but at the end of the year, we look back and find a few that seem to be especially clear illustrations of particular problems in media, or particularly strong proof of the importance of reporting that's independent of the commercial and official pressures, and the top-down approach, that too often restrain the corporate press.

We hope you enjoy this revisit with some of the Best Of CounterSpin from 2012.
