By order from our "superiors" at BC, continuing since 11-5-2023, we are now being required to recite a rigid disclaimer at the beginning of EACH HOUR of Truth and Justice Radio, including a special one for This Week In Palestine. The specified text was drafted in 2012 by "BC's communications attorney" at the law firm Mintz Levin, which at that time devoted a full page of its website to its Israel business, boasting that it was "proudly involved with organizations such as AIPAC ..." See https://web.archive.org/web/20120822073815/http://www.mintz.com/practices/17/Israel . Mintz Levin's text has not been adopted by either of our siblings, Democracy Now or Sounds Of Dissent, nor for any other show we can find on this station.

Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (New York City) Weekly edition posted 11-17-2023:Scott Burris on US v. Rahimi
Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2023
The Supreme Court has just heard the case US v. Rahimi, which is specifically about whether those under domestic violence restraining orders should have access to guns. Most media did better than Time magazine’s thumbnail of Rahimi as pitting “the safety of domestic violence victims against the nation’s broad Second Amendment rights”—because, as our guest explains, Rahimi is much more about whether this Court’s conservative majority will be able to use their special brand of backwards-looking to determine this country’s future. ... Plus Janine Jackson takes a quick look back at recent press coverage of the Gaza crisis, and at McCarthyism.

Host Michael Welch JFK 60 Years after his Death: The CIA, the Case against LBJ and Beyond
Global Research News Hour (produced at CKUW, Winnipeg; a treasured TJR source) (A part) Available at GRNH's podcast website globalresearch.ca/theme/global-research-news-hour 2023
It’s been called the end of innocence. The first of the great assassinations of the nineteen sixties. The first emergence of a national tragedy in real time on the media airwaves. The end of Camelot. The death of the 35th president of the United States in a motorcade travelling through Dallas marked the end of trust in the U.S. government, and the dawn of what came to be known as “Conspiracy Theories” revolving around seemingly impossible events. Did someone really kill our beloved president? How can that be? But as listeners to this program, and patrons of Global Research know all too well, we cannot exclude criminal practices from within the ranks of governments and government servants acting nominally in our own interests. ...
