This year has offered a nonstop exhibition on how corporate media is so bad and getting worse. How much gaslighting and illusion can we take? We speak to journalist Jon Jeter for our final culture and media segment for 2020, voices of the Rev. Allan Boesak and Jose Bustani. And the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, makes an impassioned plea for humanity to save itself and address the climate and ecological crisis.
Plus headlines on international news on Nigeria, Iran and Ethiopia with historian Gerald Horne; unemployment; Congress; activists demand Covid relief; a tribute to Jack O’Dell; and the Eaton Workshop hosts the Another World is Possible festival.
The show is made possible only by our volunteer energy, our resolve to keep the people’s voices on the air, and by support from our listeners. In this new era of fake corporate news, we have to be and support our own media!
