Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (New York City) Weekly edition posted 11-18-2022: Brian Mier on Media's Coverage of the Lula Election Victory
Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2022
ABC World News Tonight told viewers what it thought they needed to know: “Bolsonaro Loses Brazilian Election, Leftist Former President Wins by Narrow Margin.” The victor of Brazil’s consequential presidential race has an actual name; it’s not “leftist former president”…or “former shoeshine boy,” as the New York Times had it–or even “savior,” as CNN suggests supporters view him. He’s a person, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, known as Lula, a popularly supported former president, whose program had, and has, more to do with helping poor people in Brazil than with securing the kind of extractive, profit-over-all, devil-take-the-hindmost international relationships that elite US media applaud.
Host Maria Gilardin interviewing Rebecca Solnit HOLLOW CITY: The destruction of San Francisco in the late 1990s - TUC Archive
TUC Radio (longtime treasured source for TJR) Available at TUC's website tucradio.org 2022
A new generation of writers Rebecca Solnit, Mike Davis, and Gray Brechin are inspiring us into seeing our familiar surroundings with new eyes. They also offer a different perspective on the radical transformation that development and venture capital have brought to so many cities. San Francisco, formerly famous for taking a travelers heart away, is now reaching for the soul and the wallet. A dot com boom combined with the growing biotechnology industry have driven housing prices up and residents and local small businesses out. Rebecca Solnit says she wrote Hollow City in a hurry to document the beauty and rich culture that was being destroyed, and to support the growing movement of resistance.
Host Alex Wise Ian Power + Brent Constantz: Don’t Take The Planet For Granite
Sea Change Radio Available at SCRs website cchange.net 2022
This week on Sea Change Radio, we dig into the archives and take a look at two mineral-based innovations. First, we speak to Ian Power, an assistant professor at Trent University in Ontario, Canada, who is working on a breakthrough in manufacturing a CO2-absorbing mineral called magnesite in a fraction of the time that it forms in nature. We talk about his team’s research, learn about the methods they used, and talk about this unusual mineral’s potential to fight climate change. Then, we hear from Brent Constantz, the founder of Blue Planet Systems, a company that has developed innovative carbon-capturing methods for concrete production. We discuss Blue Planet’s latest projects, look at the industry as a whole, and examine some encouraging concrete recycling solutions.
Host John Roberts A long look at Amahl Bishara's new book, Crossing a Line: Laws, Violence, and Roadblocks to Palestinian Political Expression
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
John interviews the book's author in great detail. Palestinians living on different sides of the Green Line make up approximately one-fifth of Israeli citizens and about four-fifths of the population of the West Bank. In both groups, activists assert that they share a single political struggle for national liberation. Yet, obstacles inhibit their ability to speak to each other and as a collective. Geopolitical boundaries fragment Palestinians into ever smaller groups. Crossing a Line enters these distinct environments for political expression and action of Palestinians who carry Israeli citizenship and Palestinians subject to Israeli military occupation in the West Bank, and considers how Palestinians are differently impacted by dispossession, settler colonialism, and militarism.

Host David Swanson Jackie Cabasso on Nuclear Hypocrisy
Talk World Radio (longtime source for TJR; formerly "Talk Nation Radio") Available at TWR's website talkworldradio.org 2022
Cabasso discusses a frightening practice by our national so-called leaders. According to the US Constitution, signed treaties have the full force of law. Yet, no treaty is being regarded as binding on the USA. So our leaders, and Congress, have signed incredibly important treaties, especially those that rein in mutual preparations for nuclear war, without the slightest intention of honoring them.
