Mark Jones on "forgotten crises," Jack Shaheen on Arabs on TV
This week on CounterSpin: Humanitarian catastrophes claim millions of lives every year-- from brutal civil wars to disease and famine. Which stories make the headlines, and which are all but ignored by the press? We'll talk with Mark Jones of Reuters Alertnet about these 'forgotten crises.'

Also this week: The vilification of Arabs and Muslims by American media is a longstanding tradition, well documented by author and researcher Jack Shaheen. Shaheen will join us today to talk about how American television is now targeting Arab and Muslim Americans with bigoted stereotypes, and what can be done about it
