This week on CounterSpin: Media are marking the 40 year anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision. But are they giving us a clear picture of what people think of access to abortion services and reproductive rights? Journalist Rose Aguilar doesn’t think so, and she’ll join us to explain.
Also on the show: Media made much of Barack Obama’s comments on climate change in his inaugural address. But with a new (and undercovered) assessment projecting temperature rises of 9 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century, it’s obvious that talking about climate change is not enough. We’ll talk to Daphne Wysham of the Institute for Policy Studies about that story.
