The consumerist death drive, big telecoms snooping, the Alec Baldwin catastrophe

The capitalist system forces those living within it to absorb thousands of advertisements every day and it has a serious impact on how we view the world and ourselves. Lee Camp takes on the tireless parade of garbage that you might know better as consumerism. Marketing executives do their best to make the world safe for corporate, militarist, and fossil fuel interests. And they do it by lying to us about how things work, what the psychopaths in power have really done in history, and convincing us that toxic products are fine for us. Fortunately there are ways of fighting back. Camp also looks into the real reasons that the US is focusing a regime change operation on Belarus.

Naomi Karavani reports on the telecoms industry’s latest efforts to collect and sell your data. This controversy was revealed in a government report. AT&T is helping advertisers by using our data to put users into categories that marketers can use to grab our attention. Anders Lee finishes off the show with a report on the threatened labor strike in the entertainment industry. Members of the IATSE Union were discussing a strike due to worsening working conditions. Their story received international coverage after Alec Baldwin accidentally shot a production crew member on a show he was producing.
