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.

Democracy protests the media ignores, Cuba’s lung cancer vaccine, Monsanto critics smeared

Lee begins by taking a look at the democracy protests that you aren’t hearing about. The MSM has been focusing heavily on protests in Russia and Hong Kong – meanwhile, protests are raging in several countries that the US supports. Lee then covers a recent story of inhumanity from Boston PD, a lung cancer vaccine that was developed in Cuba and is unavailable in the US, and more. Natalie McGill reports on an investigation from the Guardian revealing that Monsanto collected intelligence on journalists, activists, and scientists who have criticized the company.

Interview with President Maduro of Venezuela

Lee reviews Max Blumenthal’s recent interview with Nicolas Maduro, the embattled president of Venezuela. Maduro and Blumenthal discuss the differences between how the international corporate media presents the crisis in Venezuela and the real situation on the ground. In the second half of the show, Lee sits down with peace activist Medea Benjamin of Code Pink to discuss the US’ support for Saudi Arabia’s war crimes in Yemen, the current move for war with Iran, and the US’ special relationship with Israel.

Finally some truth shines through, white supremacy & mass shootings, third-party politics

The show opens this week with a look back at stories that have made the move from fringe ideas that were mocked in the media to accepted truths in society. Lee and other independent journalists were raising the alarm about issues such as GMOs, Monsanto’s pesticides, climate change, and the insanely flawed American electoral system for years before they became widely derided. Even though society has come to accept that these issues deserve derision, it was the people exposing them who were made fun of before, and the people covering them up won’t receive any condemnation.

In the second half of the show, Lee reports on recent mass shootings, the FBI’s newest moves to criminalize conspiracy theories, and recent developments in mass surveillance in the US. The show ends with a special treat: the executive director of the Movement for a People’s Party, Nick Brana, joins Lee on the show to talk about third-party electoral politics and the failures of anyone trying to reform the DNC.

US foreign policy could kill us all

American foreign policy gets destroyed in the first half of VIP. Walter Smolarek from Sputnik sits down with Lee to talk about Trump’s recent moves with North Korea, as well as US foreign policy regarding Iran, Russia, China, and Venezuela. Smolarek highlights how dangerous the times we live in are, and how ridiculous the mainstream media’s coverage of these dangers is. Lee also talks to Kaela Bamberger of Extinction Rebellion DC. Her organization recently used their bodies and some glue to block members of Congress from getting to the Capitol building for a floor vote. They’re trying to get Congress to declare a climate emergency. She explains why disruptive, nonviolent civil disobedience is a necessary tool for any movement trying to save society from extinction.

The cringeworthy DNC debates, AFRICOM expanding violence, renewable energy under attack

The second debates for the DNC primary took place this week, and the supposed party of American democrats failed to seriously tackle issues such as climate change, America’s expansive war machine, and growing inequality. Lee opens this show by taking the DNC’s presidential wannabes to task over their weak stances. Then he reports on continuing safety issues with the Boeing 737, temperature high records across the planet, and the growth of violence in Africa as the US military expands its presence there.

In the second half of the show, Natalie McGill looks at the story of an Ohio utility company that bought out seats in their state’s legislature in order to win a $1.1 billion bailout of its failing nuclear power plants. The bailout bill also removed subsidies for renewable energy sources. And to finish the show, Naomi Karavani takes on a trend among some of the worst people in American politics, supporters of gerrymandering. In several states they are using prison populations to make their redistricting efforts seem more fair even though prisoners cannot vote in the majority of states.

Russiagate finally dies & more American hypocrisy (w/ Jesse Ventura)

To open the show this week, Lee revels in the death of the Russiagate conspiracy theory after years of concentrated propaganda from the corporate media. A former CNN correspondent, Krystal Ball, reported on the failures of the media to report critically on the story, while pundits like Lee, Aaron Mate, Glenn Greenwald and Max Blumenthal held a strong vanguard of critical reporting against the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. The whole time, they were attacked by the corporate media for their criticism and now the story is dead, you can bet they won’t receive an apology.

In the second half of the show, Lee sits down with Jesse Ventura to discuss what it’s like to be an anti-war voice in the US’ corporate media infrastructure. Ventura is currently an RT anchor but he was supposed to host a show on MSNBC during the early years of the Iraq war. He was barred from his MSNBC show for expressing anti-war views and his multimillion dollar contract stopped him from reporting for anyone else for three years. His humanitarian perspectives are also bolstered by his service as a naval seal and a term as the governor of Minnesota.
