The REAL MLK Jr, the free press under attack, US plastics manufacturers too dirty for China
The legacy of Martin Luther King Jr is misrepresented every year on the US holiday that carries his name and encourages service. This year, the FBI even made a tweet for him. Lee is here to remind you that MLK didn't just believe in service. He stood against capitalism, militarism, and racism. He died for what he believed, and the FBI played a role in his assassination. In 'Taking The News From Behind,' Brazil announced charges against Glenn Greenwald for cybercrimes, a chemical weapons investigator spoke at the UN and undermined the case claiming Bashar Assad gassed Syrian citizens, Apple admitted they don't want people to fix their phones because it takes from their profits, and more.
Anders Lee sits down with Lee to explain how the Second Amendment protesters in Virginia were responding to a bill that had nothing to do with their rights to own guns. Virginia legislator Carter Lee received death threats over a bill related to the rights of government employees to strike. The bill was misinterpreted by his GOP rivals and the VA police union. Their misinterpretation sparked a massive protest. Naomi Karavani closes the show out with a report on how China has decided to ban plastics manufacturers that pollute too much. So one US company has decided to take its dirty production processes to Louisiana.
