Amazon is not what it seems, killer cop is acquitted, DEA disaster & more

In this episode of Redacted Tonight, host Lee Camp tears Amazon and CEO Jeff Bezos a new one, explaining the true “cost of convenience.” Amazon is quickly taking over our lives and homes and, seeing how the online retailer behemoth also has a $600 million contract with the CIA and that Bezos owns the Washington Post, it’s certainly time to push back and try to divest. Next, Lee presents a new segment called, “What You Won’t Hear” that will delve into stories the mainstream media covers without giving you the full picture. He also talks about the acquittal of the police officer accused of Philando Castile’s murder, as well as a massive carbon-sucking machine in Switzerland. In the second half, correspondent John F. O’Donnell joins Lee at the desk to break down a new report from NGO Save the Children entitled “The End of Childhood Index.” The international child’s rights organization did a comparative analysis of 172 countries to determine the best and worst countries in which to be a child – where the US ranks will certainly surprise you. Finally, correspondent Naomi Karavani files a scathing report on the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) that looks into a botched drug operation the DEA embarked upon in Mexico that led directly to a massacre. A Propublica report that largely went under the radar spotlights the DEA’s role. Naomi also highlights an occasion when the DEA misled congress and the DOJ about fatal shootings in Honduras. All of this on episode #153 of Redacted Tonight!
