This week on CounterSpin: ConsortiumNews.com editor Robert Parry will join us to reflect on the latest Bush scandal, and how the news media seem eager to help the White House get back on its feet. Parry will tell us about an alternative response to the Bush scandals and share his thoughts on the Lewis Libby indictment from the perspective of a veteran reporter who broke some of the most important Iran Contra scandal stories.
Also on the show: With Harriet Miers out of the running, George Bush has put forward a new nominee for the Supreme Court. Judge Samuel Alito is being taken more seriously, but are media asking ALL of the questions about his record and his positions that are relevant for a potential Supreme Court justice? We’ll hear from Columbia law professor Michael C. Dorf.
