The Washington Post, in a widely critiqued article recently promoted the work of a secret group that has labeled hundreds of websites as pro-Russian propaganda. Today we’ll turn to Joshua Frank, managing editor of Counterpunch, which one of the media outlets identified by the neo-Red Baiting outfit. And, author and academic Steven Salaita joins us from Beirut to discuss his new book, Inter/Nationalism: Decolonizing Native America and Palestine. Salaita garnered international attention last year when his offer of a tenured position was rescinded by the University of Chicago over his public criticisms of Israel. Finally, our pop culture correspondent and film critic Stephanie Abraham joins us to dissect the new Pablo Larrain biopic of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.
