Redacted Tonight

With reality now seeming like a Shakespearean comedy, perhaps only comedy can truly bring truth to the people. DC-born comedian Lee Camp and a talented cast do just that with RT America’s first comedy show - Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp. This is not your grandparents’ satire program. Every week Redacted Tonight will provide comedy news with a punch. This weekly satire show tackles all the real news stories the mainstream media failed to mention and provides new angles on the ones they do.

Cheering for more war in Syria

VIP opens with Lee discussing some headlines from this week. He questions why Bolton is being lauded for his criticism of Rudy Giuliani despite also being a terrible person.

Also, Redacted Tonight correspondent Natalie McGill delves into why electric vehicle owners are subject to outrageous taxes and fees brought on by the powerful fossil fuel industries. Lee sits down with author and journalist Tim Shorrock to discuss potential peace with North Korea, and why South Korea plays an important part in the peace process.

Trump official shut down, class solidarity from the rich, attack drones

This week, Lee shows you a successful example of deplatforming. A Trump official was expected to speak at Georgetown University. He’s part of the enforcement of the US’ border policy, a policy which includes the detention and abuse of asylum seekers. A group of protesters shut him down and he eventually left. Then, Lee looks deeper into a week of news including Ellen Degeneres’ friendship with the war criminal President George W. Bush.

Naomi Karavani sits down with Lee with a story about the new market of commercial killer drones. The armed drones will complement Jeff Bezos’ plans to have his packages delivered by their more peaceful kin. Natalie McGill finishes off the show by introducing you to the president’s new labor secretary, the son of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Eugene Scalia, like his father before him, is no stranger to screwing over marginalized people given his history as a lawyer who has stood up for corporations that railed against workers’ rights.

Justin Trudeau’s scandals, real corruption around Ukraine & the Ecuadorian government flees protesters

VIP opens with Lee shredding some headlines from this week. The corporate media always reliably give him some great material to make fun of including lackluster coverage of a US puppet government in Ecuador being chased out of the capital by protesters. Also, Redacted Tonight’s new correspondent Anders Lee digs into the dark side of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he runs for reelection. There’s more than just the blackface scandal.

In the second half of the show, Lee sits down with the editor-in-chief of Consortium News, Joe Lauria. They discuss the biggest aspects of the impeachment inquiry that the Democrats and Republicans don’t want to talk about. The Ukraine corruption story unveils more than just corruption from the US president. It might cause chaos across the political spectrum.

Good reasons to impeach Trump, the new Haitian revolution, reverse mortgages creating more homelessness

The show this week opens with a perspective on impeachment that's lacking in the mainstream media. Donald Trump proved that he was an impeachable president before he even won the presidency. He proved himself a deceitful businessman, a rapist, and a racist. He also clearly profited from the presidency. He governed in his first term as all of those things and now his impeachment is beginning for none of those things. In Taking The News From Behind, Lee digs into a strange connection between Twitter and an expert in psyops, the GM strikes, and the burgeoning revolt in Haiti.

In the second half of the show, Natalie McGill discusses a scam in the housing market referred to as ‘reverse mortgages.’ This deceptive practice is leaving older Americans homeless. And Anders Lee caps off the show by lambasting new theories in political science that are vaguely reminiscent of race science. Some ‘experts’ are arguing that your politics have a genetic component.

The cost of healthcare, how the newspapers lie to you

The show this week opens with Lee shredding an NPR headline where the foreign minister of Hungary declared that having Radio Free Europe, a part of the US’ propaganda network, in his country would be an insult. NPR chose to cover the story without truly dealing with why Hungarian officials might consider their presence an affront.Then Naomi Karavani makes her VIP debut in our new segment. She looks at a recent study which found healthcare costs in the US are so out of control that if those resources were redirected we could absolutely afford universal coverage.

In the second half of the show Lee speaks with Daniel Silver. He is the author of ‘Unravelling the Puzzle of the Los Angeles Times’. In the book Silver dissects several articles from this popular newspaper to explain how this type of propaganda is crafted. What is being said. What is being left out. How it’s being said. And how that’s used to influence what the reader thinks about the topic.

Shutting down DC for climate change, Trump & Biden corrupt, FBI loses to anti-war website in court

This week, Washington – the ‘belly of the beast’ – saw Shut Down DC protests blocking roads in a bid to stop business as usual. They did so to protest against accelerating climate change. Lee opens the show with a frank discussion on why we need radical strategies right now, as the threat of climate change continues to grow without any significant challenge from our governments, our industries, or our social institutions. Then Lee ‘Takes the News from Behind’ in an exciting week when Trump’s impeachment proceedings were announced and attention was brought to the corruption of Joe Biden and his son. There’s also good news about 3D printing, and word of genetically modified mosquitoes getting out of control.

In the second half of the show, we introduce new Redacted Tonight correspondent Anders Lee. In his first report on the show, Anders and Lee explore the world of the pro-gentrification YIMBY movement. And finally, Naomi Karavani caps off this week’s show with a look at an unlikely legal victory against the FBI. The website antiwar.com was being surveilled by the agency, because the FBI loves war. So they sued and won with the support of the ACLU. The court proceedings determined that the FBI slandered the website and forced the federal agency to destroy its records on the pro-peace journalists.
