This week on CounterSpin: The break up of the 13 million member AFL-CIO has been the biggest labor story in recent weeks, but have corporate media been doing justice to the story? We’ll talk to labor and economics writer Jonathan Tasini about that, as well as about coverage of CAFTA and what the New York Times has against his response in particular to the passing of that agreement.

Also this week: Uncovering the truth about the horrors of war. A new documentary reveals suppressed images of civilian suffering–not from Iraq, but from Japan 60 years ago. Greg Mitchell of Editor and Publisher will join us to talk about the government’s efforts to keep the truth about Hiroshima and Nagasaki hidden from view.
