Counterspin - October 28, 2005

While the CIA leak investigation has the Beltway establishment on edge, a parallel scandal of sorts is playing out in the Italian media. The story gets to the heart of the Bush administration's case for the Iraq war. So why aren't we hearing more about it? We'll talk to journalist Laura Rozen about the scandal unfolding in Italy, and what it could mean for the White House.

Also on the show: "Village Voice turns 50, merges with chain" --that dry wire service headline unfortunately does tell the story. The owners of New York's and maybe the country's preeminent alternative weekly have announced a merger with New Times Media another alternative weekly company that owns 11 papers. So what's alternative about it? We'll hear from hip hop journalist and author Jeff Chang.
