Global Research News Hour: Journalism in the Crosshairs: The Julian Assange Case, Segment 1

3 weeks 5 days ago
This week on the Global Research News Hour we bring a special program focused on the plight of Julian Assange. We look not only on the details of the recent appeal of the Extradition Trial, we probe his history and background, the role of Wikileaks, and the eventual erasure of journalism manifest in attempts to continue the assault on Assange. Our round of guest speakers include John Shipton, the father of Assange, John Kiriakou, Joe Lauria, Binoy Kampmark, and Megan Sherman with appearances by Stella Moris, Assange’s fiancee, and John Pilger.

Taylor Report: Jerry Dias Street was a Dead End, Segment 1

3 weeks 5 days ago
Who asks that a street be named after themselves? Or gets one of their employees to ask? Earlier this year a UNIFOR National Representative sent a letter to the Mayor of Oshawa asking that street be named after UNIFOR President Jerry Dias. The members of Unifor in Oshawa were never informed of this egotistical effort, and when they found out they were enraged that Oshawa was being asked to honour a union leader who is associated with: • Two-tier agreements that have newly hired workers starting at 65% of regular pay, and not getting equal pay until after 8 years. • The elimination of defined benefit pensions. • Five contracts in a row with no increases in pensions for retirees. • Dividing the Canadian labour movement by raiding other unions and pulling out of the CLC. • Cozying up to pro-corporate politicians like Trudeau, Wynne and Kellie Leitch and joining Chrystia Freeland’s NAFTA team. Union members pointed out that it would be far better to honour people who had demonstrated real union principles like Bev McCloskey, founder of the Local 222 Women’s Committee who led the fight to amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to end discrimination on the basis of sex, or Cliff Pilkey, former Local 222 President, City Councillor and NDP Member of the Provincial Parliament. The Oshawa Council was bombarded with angry emails from members of Unifor Local 222, and as a result they turned down the request by a vote of 9-2.

Unusual Sources: Extraordinary Threat - Broadcast Edition, Segment 1

3 weeks 5 days ago
The Canadian book launch of "Extraordinary Threat: The U.S. Empire, the Media, and Twenty Years of Coup Attempts in Venezuela." Joe Emersberger and Justin Podur apply media analysis to the absurd claims that Venezuela represents an "extraordinary threat" to the United States, or that 'Chavizmo' transformed "once prosperous" Venezuela into a poorhouse. The U.S. desire to intervene in oil-rich Venezuela means that it needs to construct narratives to justify intervention. These self-serving stories denigrate the achievements in poverty reduction of the Bolivarian Revolution, while minimizing the U.S. role in disrupting the Venezuelan economy and civil society. Particular attention is given to "human rights organizations" such as Amnesty International, who minimize the effect of U.S. encirclement and coup-promotion, instead preferring to "referee" a supposedly level-playing-field in the country.

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #262/The Smartest Monkeys, Segment 1

3 weeks 5 days ago
Sonic Café, The Smartest Monkeys, that’s XTC from 1992. So hey, thanks for dropping by, I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 262. For now, we humans are the smartest monkeys, but soon, they tell us we’ll be answering to an all powerful, world conquering, AI in the sky. So will our artificially intelligent overlords be benevolent leaders, or, will they decide that earth will be better off without all us smart monkeys defoliating everything we touch. Hmm… anyway, this time the Sonic Café presents the future, as we turn the show over to our very own AI, the Totally Random Improbability drive. Listen for an algorithmically selected music mix covering 45 years, including dinosaur rock from Steppenwolf, also Cowboy Mouth, Christopher Young, Alanis Morissette, Parquet Courts, Eric Clapton, the Whitest Boy Alive and more. We’ll also get front row seats to the big keynote reveal of Helix 900, the world’s first robotic office assistant, and then later, witness the future of comedy with Mr. Zed, the world’s first robotic comedian. All that plus advice to our future selves from Silicon Valley’s Bertram Gilfoyle, all just ahead, as we turn the controls over to our Totally Random Improbability Drive, an AI, that’s not in the sky, but rather right here at our little café on the coast, we’re the Sonic Café.
