Counterspin - November 11, 2005

For months on end we've heard that the so-called oil-for-food scandal would show deep corruption at the highest levels of the United Nations. So when a lengthy report on the program's mismanagement came out, how did the facts stack up against the right-wing spin that's been driving the story? Joshua Holland of Alternet will join us to talk about that-- and the potentially explosive charges that are actually in the report that have escaped media attention.

Also this week: The Media Access Project is challenging the broadcast licenses of every English language TV station in Chicago and Milwaukee, because the group's director Andrew Schwartzman says that station are failing miserably to cover local political and ballot issues, as is required by conditions of their licenses.
