Antonia Juhasz on BP Spill, Greg Grandin on the Economist and Slavery

This week on CounterSpin: A judge has ruled BP was guilty of willful misconduct and gross negligence in the Deepwater Horizon disaster that killed 11 people and dumped millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. With Obama talking about expanding offshore drilling, you'd hope the media would take serious notice. We'll talk about what that would look like with Antonia Juhasz, author of Black Tide: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill.

Also on the show: The Economist magazine recently apologized and retracted its review of 'The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism,' a review that faulted the author for portraying whites as slavery's villains, and blacks as its victims. Yes. New York University history professor Greg Grandin will join us to talk about the Economist's slavery problem.
