Mueller’s uneventful testimony, UK tries its own right-wing demagogue, developers destroy hospitals
To open the show this week, Lee delves into the Mueller hearing. The House brought Robert Mueller downtown to discuss the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. He managed to say nothing during hours of testimony. It was really quite impressive. The highlights, surprisingly, came from Republicans poking holes in the narrative that the media spent the last three years trying to prove. In ‘Taking The News From Behind,’ you’ll hear about Britain’s newest conservative prime minister, a fun conspiracy theory from Kamala Harris about Colin Kaepernik and the Russkies, and more.
Natalie McGill opens the second half of the show with a report on how private equity firms are making a habit of buying struggling urban hospitals that cater for the poor and uninsured, only to bleed their assets and sell the property to developers. The only reason these hospitals are cash-strapped is because of a deeply flawed for-profit healthcare system. To end the show, Naomi Karavani looks into the media trend of taking stories that actually show the complete failure of American society to protect people living within it, and turning them into ‘feel-good’ tales of people overcoming diversity.
