Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (New York City) Weekly edition posted 7-1-2022: Saudi Arabia: "Pariah" or heroic oil rescuer? Snubbing Cuba and Venezuela
Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2022
Elite news media are saying that Biden has to go to Saudi Arabia in July despite his pledges to make the country a “pariah” for abuses including the grisly murder of a Washington Post contributor, because…stability? Shaking hands with Mohammed bin Salman makes sense, even in the context of denying Cuba and Venezuela participation in the Americas Summit out of purported concerns about their human rights records, because…gas prices? It’s hard to parse corporate media coverage of Biden’s Saudi visit, because that coverage obscures rather than illuminates what’s going on behind the euphemism “US interests.” ...
Host Jeff Schectman (interviewing Ira Shapiro) The Decline and Fall of the US Senate
Radio Who What Why Available at RWWW's website whowhatwhy.org/podcast/ 2022
Almost all of the policy crises we face today — abortion, guns, climate change, the integrity of our elections — have been blocked from consideration by the US Senate. How did that happen? How did what some have called the “world’s greatest deliberative body” come to a standstill? The answer, according to Ira Shapiro, our guest on this week’s WhoWhatWhy podcast – is Mitch McConnell. Senate Minority Leader McConnell (R-KY) has put these highly critical issues on ice. Shapiro is a 45-year veteran of Washington, a former Senate staffer, a former official in the Clinton administration, and the author of three books about the US Senate, including his latest, The Betrayal: How Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans Abandoned America. Shapiro details what happened after McConnell became minority leader, and how it led, in his view, to a “dark place in history.” ...

Host John Roberts Amira Hass, the only Jewish Israeli journalist to have lived among the Palestinians in Gaza and Ramallah since 1993
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
Hass insists that covering Palestine from Palestine is as necessary as covering Britain from London, and France from Paris. Her reports for the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, which she says "cannot be objective, just as any reporting about wrong-doing cannot be objective," have won her enemies in all camps. Forced by Hamas to leave Gaza earlier than planned, in 2008, she was detained in Israel twice for entering Gaza without a permit and staying in an "enemy entity." (Replay from 3/27/22)
