The Afghanistan papers, voter suppression in Wisconsin, digital reputation scrubbing

The Washington Post recently did something shocking... journalism. They received documents through FOIA requests that proved the government was actively lying about the Afghanistan war. These lies were an open secret and now they’re proven. Lee opens the show this week by reviewing the revelations from the FOIA releases. In ‘Taking The News From Behind’, Lee looks at the British election, voter suppression in Wisconsin, Boeing’s decision to shut down production of the 737, and a fatal flaw in Lexus’ technology. Naomi Karavani reports on a company that helps some of the most despicable figures in the US to scrub their reputations using digital media strategies. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos had an embarrassing incident in her campaign to save her name from her brother’s bloody name and her professional background. Natalie McGill closes the show on a union busting story centered around Hearst Magazine.
