I discuss history of “fake news,” of US mainstream media collaborating with the government in uncritically promoting every US war and intervention with some “alternative” sources now ahead of the government or at least on the same page in pushing fake news. (I am referring to Democracy Now! But don't name it).

I cite Consortium News as a beacon of genuine journalism in this field of slime and note that my interview guest, Joe Lauria, a veteran foreign correspondent, has become the new editor of Consortium News following the death of its founder, Robert Parry.

I then poke fun at the lawsuit filed by DNC chief Tom Perez against Russia, Wikileaks and the Trump campaign for meddling in the 2016 elections, noting that by acting as if the exposure of the contents of the DNC's and John Podesta's emails were anything but a healthy exposure to the DNC's efforts to sabotage Sanders' nomination, letting the party's dissidents know that nothing has or will change at the top.

I then read from a report made by Robert Fisk from his visit to Douma where he learns that the accusation that Syria had used chlorine gas on the city was a total fabrication that the UK, US etc. funded White Helmets were responsible in spreading.

I then note that a Christian radio station that backs Trump sent a reporter to Douma and his interviews with the residents there confirms Fisk's account.

Finally, I update the protests by Palestinians in Gaza and how the violence on the party of Israeli soldiers in responding to the protests led Jerusalem born star Hollywood actress, Natalie Portman, to refuse to go to Israel to accept a $2 million Genesis prize and how one Israeli official wants her stripped of her Israeli citizenship.
