This week on CounterSpin: Mainstream U.S. reporting on the assault on the Iraqi city of Fallujah bears little resemblance to journalism coming from independent and international reporters covering the besieged city. Journalist and UC Berkeley journalism lecturer Lamis Andoni has been monitoring mainstream, independent and Arab satellite news reporting on Fallujah– she’ll join the show to tell us her thoughts on the differences.

Also this week: who are the Bushwomen? Former CounterSpin host Laura Flanders will join the show to talk about her new book, which takes a critical look at some of the most prominent women working in the Bush administration.
