This week on CounterSpin: barring any major disruptions, John Kerry will be the Democratic nominee for president. Bush campaign officials are getting to work on him early in an effort to “define” Kerry for the voters. So how have the media handled the charges against Kerry so far? CounterSpin will ask Bob Somerby of the Daily Howler website.

And a brand new study from the University of Maryland’s Center for International and Security Studies gives U.S. news coverage of weapons of mass destruction low marks. CounterSpin will talk to the study’s author, University of Maryland journalism professor Susan Moeller.
