Understand the sham

GUEST: Guillermo Fesser, a radio host whose news program is broadcast in Spain, talks about his efforts in America to publicize a new book on Palestine, The Almond Tree.

It was a pleasure having Guillermo on Activist Radio. I wish I knew enough Spanish to understand his long running radio show broadcast in Spain. Politics with a touch of humor. We never got around to asking him about Harry Shearer, one of America's most biting humorists. Or about the Daily Show, where most people in their twenties get their news. The US media is so full of lies that humorists get to say much more than journalists.

I hope we can get the writer, Michelle Cohen Corasanti, as a guest later on in the year. The book is a powerful look at the lives of Palestinians, something that the average American is never exposed to by our media. How do we know our media is controlled by our government? Look at the US reporting of Palestine for the last 60 years. Then read some foreign press. That's all anyone has to do to understand the sham we call freedom of the press in the US.
