Journalism in the digital age, voter suppression, & protest
This week, Lee brings you a double-interview VIP special. To open the show, Lee talks to the internationally renowned investigative reporter and friend of the show Greg Palast. They discuss several topics including the disintegration of the Russiagate narrative, Palast’s continued coverage of a voter disenfranchisement program named Interstate Crosscheck, the lack of a good deal on Brexit, and Palast’s work uncovering the racist ideas driving the rebels in Venezuela.
In the second half of the show, Lee talks with Ford Fischer, the founder of a news startup called News2Share. Fischer is an independent journalist and entrepreneur who decided to start a media company that puts video cameras on the ground at protests of all kinds. Earlier this year, he spent a month in Paris to cover the Yellow Vest protests. He was also at Charlottesville when Heather Heyer was murdered last year, and he seems to be at new protests across the US every week.
