This week on CounterSpin: Why have more than 700 people been arrested at the White House in recent days? Don’t ask nightly news– they’ve so far yet to find anything newsworthy in the largest environmental action in years: a massive protest against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. We’ll get the story TV’s missing from Lorne Stockman, Research Director at the group Oil Change International.
Also on CounterSpin today, the Center for American Progress has published a new report on Islamophobia that looks at a prominent network of organizations and individuals who promote hatred of Islam and Muslims in the U.S. From its funders, to its intellectuals, to its propagandists, Fear Inc. names the names. We’ll talk with Faiz Shakir, the editor of ThinkProgress.org, and one of the report’s co-authors.
