Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2022
Headlines right now are full of the conflict of interest represented by Ginni Thomas, spouse of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and her non-trivial role in the January 6 insurrection aimed at overturning, violently, the last presidential election. Our question is: A week or a month from now, where will we be? Will we still have one of nine Supreme Court justices declaring himself “one being” with his spouse, who declares the 2020 election an “obvious fraud”? And will the corporate press corps have reduced that to yet another partisan spat that shouldn’t interfere with our belief that all is proceeding as it should, no deep fixes necessary? We speak with Sarah Lipton-Lubet from the Take Back the Court Action Fund, about how to respond to the Thomas scandal if we really don’t want it to happen again. ...

Host John Roberts Sut Jhally: understanding the suppression of the Palestinian narrative
This Week In Palestine (award-winning exclusive weekly feature of TJR) For a description or download of this or any week's edition of T.W.I.P., go to TJR's website truthandjusticeradio.org 2022
A major problem for pro-Palestinian activists is getting the Palestinian narrative, the Palestinian factual history, the Palestinian truth, or the Palestinian analysis, into the mainstream media, which is currently dominated by the revisionist Israeli narrative fueled by the multimillion dollar Israeli Lobby. This week we take the current temperature of US media on presenting Palestinian visibility, the Palestinian case for liberation, and the projection of the Palestinian voice into the mainstream conversation. We feature Sut Jhally, professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, where he taught in the Communications Department. He is also the producer of many films, including “The Occupation of the American Mind.” It offers a thorough exploration of this very issue, and it’s currently available free on youtube. We hear Professor Jhally speaking at a lively forum sponsored by Washington Report on Middle East Affairs in Washington, DC. ...

Host Jeff Schechtman - The Global Economic Consequences of Putin’s War
Host Jeff Schechtman The Global Economic Consequences of Putin’s War
Radio Who What Why Available at RWWW's podcast site whowhatwhy.org/podcast 2022
As usual, Schechtman adopts the official story on US/Ukraine/Russia. Does it matter? Regardless, the current sanctions imposed on Russia by the US and Europe are unprecedented — and put all of the nations involved into uncharted and risky economic territory. So says Columbia University professor Adam Tooze. Tooze is the author of Shutdown: How Covid Shook the World’s Economy, and writes the newsletter Chartbook, which is published on Substack. This week, he offers an in-depth and far-reaching analysis of where the sanctions may be driving the world economy. While the US portion of the sanctions is relatively small, with immediate repercussions likely limited to our energy and food sectors, the impact on the global economy may be far more serious and long-lasting. For example, shipping and commodity markets will be hard-hit, with painful consequences for low-income countries, particularly in the Global South. …
