This week on CounterSpin: the Senate Intelligence Committee report found that the intelligence about Iraq’s weapons programs was severely flawed. But is there more to this story than what we’ve been reading and hearing from the press corps? We’ll ask former CIA analyst Ray McGovern what he thinks of the media’s handing of the intelligence debacle.

Also this week, a new documentary alleges that the Fox News Channel favors conservatives and the Bush White House. What kind of evidence do they present, and what does Fox have to say about it? We’ll ask Robert Greenwald, the producer of Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism.
