Drawing on an international network of experts, analysts, activists and artists, CounterSpin dissects news coverage of a wide range of issues and current events. The show is a welcome antidote to the tweedle-dee, tweedle-dum reporting that dominates mainstream media.
CounterSpin provides a critical examination of the major stories every week, and exposes what the mainstream media might have missed in their own coverage. Combining lively discussion and a thoughtful media critique, CounterSpin is unlike any other show on the dial.
CounterSpin exposes and highlights biased and inaccurate news; censored stories; sexism, racism and homophobia in the news; the power of corporate influence; gaffes and goofs by leading TV pundits; TV news' narrow political spectrum; attacks on free speech; and more.
