This week on CounterSpin: The wars in Lebanon and Gaza rage on. As usual, civilians bear the brunt of the destruction, nowhere more so than in Lebanon, where reports suggest hundreds are dead and hundreds of thousands have fled their homes. Columnist Norman Solomon will join us to share his thoughts about the war we’re seeing—and not seeing—here.
Also on the show: Research and experience suggest viewers won’t find much of an Arab or Muslim perspective on the nightly news, on the current Mid East violence, or ever for that matter. One outlet that works to fill that chronic void is LinkTV with its award-winning program Mosaic: World News from the Middle East. We’ll talk with Mosaic producer Jamal Dajani, about what that program is doing these days and every day.
