Andrew Wetzler on Endangered Species Act, Bob Lederer on Filiberto Ojeda Rios

This week on CounterSpin: Is the Endangered Species Act in danger itself? The House voted late last month to make significant changes in the landmark environment law. So how much attention did the press pay to this? We’ll talk to Andrew Wetzler of the Natural Resources Defense Council about that.

Also on the show: the FBI killing, under unclear circumstances, of longtime Puerto Rican independence activist Filiberto Ojeda Rios has sparked angry protest in Puerto Rico and around the country, but media, who’ve never shown much interest in Puerto Rican history or politics, haven’t provided much beyond the bare facts. We’ll get some background and context on this story from WBAI radio host and producer Bob Lederer.
