Pompeo admits CIA misdeeds, Assange sentenced, NYPD arrests innocents as gang members

Lee opens the show by tearing apart an interview with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who admitted that when he was in the CIA, they lied, cheated, and stole to get what they wanted. Lee then reports on the situation at the Venezuelan Embassy in DC, the removal and censoring of alternative media voices from social media, and the sentencing of Assange in the UK. Naomi Karavani dives into a story wherein the NYPD attempted to crack down on gangs and ended up arresting a bunch of young black kids who weren’t affiliated with gangs. In true form, they still charged them as gang members. Natalie McGill reveals that big oil is paying major papers like the Washington Post and New York Times to place ads in their publications which mirror editorial content. These ads are meant to greenwash the effects of climate change that were caused by the corporations.
