From U.S. warmongering, to the imprisonment of Julian Assange, to the stories that movies tell us. We have an in-depth conversation about corporate media and national and international news with journalist Jon Jeter.

-Progressives in the House of Representatives were outraged this week after House speaker Nancy Pelosi first rejected then accepted a Senate bill that gives the Trump administration $4.6 billion dollars more for the southern border without rules stipulating that the funds be used for humanitarian relief.
-Freshmen lawmakers issued a joint statement denouncing Trump’s announced mass deportations of undocumented immigrants and denouncing the additional funding to border agencies that they characterized as “radicalized” and “criminal.”
-The Supreme Court struck down at least temporarily the Trump administration’s proposal to put a citizenship question on the census but allowed partisan gerrymandering of electoral districts to stand.
