On today's show, Eleanor and Mickey speak with two veteran investigative journalists, both on the issue of Israeli influence in U.S. media and society. In the first segment, James Bamford speaks about Project Butterfly, a multimillion-dollar campaign begun in 2015 to undermine pro-Palestinian advocacy in the U.S., especially on campuses. He asks why U.S. law enforcement has never investigated Israeli agents connected with Project Butterfly, the 2020 Trump campaign, and other domestic activities. Next, Peter Byrne discusses his article written on assignment for the North Bay Bohemian, which the Bohemian then declined to publish. Byrne believes this happened because his article was about a protest against the Israeli massacres in Gaza. He also speaks more generally about Israeli efforts to tilt U.S. public discourse about the Middle East.

Gaza has been in the news for nearly two months now. Tonight's South Asia edition of APEX Express is about uplifting South Asian solidarity with Palestine. Our multiple screens have been a tumultuous barrage of stories from West Asia the last few weeks, of Palestinian struggle and Israeli occupation, and a genocide unfolding on our collective clock of inhumanity. In the first half of tonight's show, co-producer Anuj Larvaidya talks to Sunaina Maira and Gabi Kirk to help make sense of this moment. They discuss the historical context and complexities, about the ecological impacts of the war on the region, about how we can plug into the growing Boycott-Divest-Sanctions or the BDS movement, and about faith-washing – how matters of land and settler colonialism are spun as matters of religious rights and persecution. In the second half of the episode Preeti Gamzeh speaks with journalist Azad Essa about the relationship between India and Israel. How post-independence, India tried to be in solidarity with Palestine – but really was not; and how and where Hindu fundamentalism or Hindutva and Zionism intersect.

Law Enforcement in this country kills approximately 1200 people every single year and yet the names of many are never said or known except to their families and friends. What's more, law enforcement agencies and other state actors harm our community in a myriad of ways that also go unnoticed like profiling, sexually assaulting and wrongfully incarcerating our people. If we don't know its happening – then we can't fight back. We cant adequately organize a response. So, every week on Law & Disorder we do a round up of news related to state violence. We hope this segment will serve to expose, agitate and build. This is the State Terror Round Up for the week of November 27th, 2023. —- This episode featured music by Kofy Brown.

In ProPublica's latest investigation into the forensic junk science, we learn about some medical examiners' use of ‘lung float tests', which use questionable-at-best practices to determine whether a baby who has died was born as a stillbirth. The test has been used to convict women who've birthed stillborn babies of murdering their child. Our guest is Duaa Eldeib, a reporter at ProPublica whose reporting has sparked legislative hearings and government reform and has led to the release of young men incarcerated as juveniles then later sent to adult prison for “minor” offenses. Her latest reporting is on a forensic analysis tool that experts have likened to a witch trial, to convict women who've had stillbirths at home, of murder. As a result of her reporting on this topic, new investigations are underway to examine that the validity – or not – of the forensic junk science. Her latest piece in ProPublica is titled, “Experts to Examine a Controversial Forensic Test That Has Helped Convict Women of Murder”.

This week on CounterSpin: The new president of Argentina opposes abortion rights, casts doubt on the death toll of the country's military dictatorship, would like it to be easier to access handguns and calls climate change a “lie of socialism.” Many were worried about what Javier Milei would bring, but, the Washington Post explained: “Anger won over fear. For many Argentines, the bigger risk was more of the same.” But if you want to dig down into the roots of that “same,” the economic and historic conditions that drove that deep dissatisfaction, US news media will be less helpful to you there. Milei is not a landslide popular president, and thoughtful, critical information and conversation could help clarify peoples' problems and their sources, such that voters — in Argentina and elsewhere — might not be left to believe that the only way forward is a man wielding a literal chainsaw. We'll learn about Javier Milei and what led to his election from Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research and author of the book Failed: What the “Experts” Got Wrong About the Global Economy. But first, Janine Jackson takes a quick look at FAIR's recent study on the Sunday shows' Gaza guests. The post Mark Weisbrot on Argentina's Javier Milei appeared first on KPFA.
