On tonight’s GRITtv, our Monday Media Roundtable chews over the Sunday chats on the McClellan book, CNN’s misreporting of the California gay marriage decision, and the press pounding on the idea that Obama hasn’t "closed the deal" with white voters. Our panel: Jeff Cohen, founder of FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting), now of Ithaca College, The Nation’s Richard Kim and Ann Northrop, co-host of FreeSpeechTV’s Gay USA.
Former talk show host Phil Donahue discusses his dismissal from MSNBC on the eve of the last Gulf War, and new film with Ellen Spiro, Body of War. Pepe Escobar of The Real News breaks down what you didn’t see in the US news on the atomic threat posed – or not posed – by Iran. Filmmakers Anne Derwent and Bob Gray ask citizens what they want to say to the presidential candidates in their American Voices series, common cause among bike riders and police brutality activists as the Rev. Al Sharpton and the family of Sean Bell join Critical Mass in a bike ride, and SEIU’s Justice For Janitors campaign. All here, on GRITtv with Laura Flanders!
