During the scripted Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki, Finland, a US journalist, Sam Husseini, was taken into police custody for holding a small sign. Husseini, a long time advocate for exposing and breaking through the corporate media machine, hoped to ask a few critical questions of the world leaders. He speaks about the press conference, how he was treated and the state of media in general. We also cover recent news including the Mueller indictments, Russia gate, NATO, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and the release of Ahed Tamimi and her mother.
On our new program, "Thinking it Through," we discuss what a people's media looks like in greater depth. To hear "Thinking It Through" and support improvements to Clearing the FOG, join the new Patreon campaign at patreon.com/clearingthefog. You will also find new Clearing the FOG gear.
