This week on CounterSpin: As a covert war against Iran seems to be intensifying, the U.S. media have looked like willing partners in an anti-Iran propaganda campaign, helping US officials project dishonest claims, rs. We'll speak with Cyrus Safdari of Iran Affairs about coverage.

Also on the show: The two year anniversary of the devastating Haiti earthquake is being marked as a sign of failure, as millions of dollars of aid and assistance seem to have translated to hundreds of thousands of people living in tents, and a new outbreak of Cholera. But is what went wrong with Haiti relief more of a mystery or a crime? We'll hear from Jake Johnston, researcher with the Center for Economic and Policy Research, and lead blogger for CEPR's Haiti Relief and Reconstruction Watch.
