Shot for calling 9-1-1, Ferguson on edge: Media intimidation & community response
Abby Martin discusses the deal reached between the US and China to reduce carbon emissions in the coming decades - just hours later, Congress announced a vote on the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline. Crazy police stories from Canadian police beating the living daylights out of a mother in front of her child to a chief in Michigan letting anyone become a cop for a nominal fee and a few hours of training. Guests from Ferguson, MO: RT contributor Ben Swann, hip hop artist Prince EA and citizen journalist Jon Ziegler talk about the tension on the ground, how the police response to protests over the shooting death of Mike Brown have been influenced by cultural and sociological factors, and the role of media in covering the situation.
