Targeting journalists, murderous Honduras, Bush’s fourth term
Abby Martin highlights locksmiths in Spain who announced that they will no longer carry out evictions associated with foreclosures, and collectively calls out police in India for gender discrimination and blatant disregard for the rule of law. Next, producer Manuel Rapalo talks about the volatile situation in Honduras, citing political instability and drug trafficking in an environment of lawlessness and impunity. Abby then interviews Georgetown Professor Christopher Chamber about the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists and the importance of protecting freedom of press for the health of democracy. Finally, we look at President Obama’s announcement of John Brennan as the new director of the CIA, a person whose legacy is rife with corruption and support for some of the worst counterterrorism policies of the Bush era.
