Christy Harvey on Senate Filibuster, Ross Gelbspan on Climate Change
This week on CounterSpin: Senate rules are suddenly big news, as Republicans charge that Democrats are unfairly—and perhaps unconstitutionally—blocking the White House’s judicial nominees. With all the claims and counter-claims, are reporters sorting out the facts? We’ll ask Christy Harvey of the Center for American Progress.

Also on the show: The media debate on climate change and global warming continues to lend credence to a small group of industry-paid commentators and scientists whose denial of global warming is contradicted by the overwhelming scientific consensus. We’ll talk with journalist Ross Gelbspan, whose article, "Snowed," is part of a package on the climate change debate in the May–June issue of Mother Jones magazine.
