Customer Reviews

CounterSpin Rules! Excellent!

Always concise, always professional, always insightful. A solid 30 minutes of fight-the-power subversive thought. Presented with class. Top-shelf. Support FAIR. Thank you.

Round I: critical thought versus infotainment

Top story of the day: dog does cute trick. Left out: what happens with your tax dollars, and what officials do in your name. Counterspin is a weekly broadcast by the media watchgroup FAIR [Fairness and Accuacy In Reporting]. Each week hosts offer a critical examination of what gets reported or not in the mainstream news. The show often includes a wide range of authoritative guests and/or empirical support for a more comprehensive look at current events, the public interest, and the role of the media. Not all viewpoints are equal in weight or size simply because they’re different. Because of the enormous effort it takes to refute a constant barrage of sound bite reporting, I’m giving Counterspin a five-star rating. The mainstream media reporting standard has been declining. Vital information is often left out, leaving readers and viewers in the dark, and it affects public discourse. Media have an obligation to inform the public about current events, and they often don’t. Counterspin has earned a right to illustrate the hypocrisy of mainstream reporting, often citing the media as the original souce of their quotes. Reasonable people cannot possibly formulate an accurate view or make informed choices about the world we live in with less.

Too Smug for Me

I am a big lefty. I subscribe to FAIR and regularly participate in their "Action Alerts," but I cannot listen to CounterSpin. Every show and nearly every segment contains snarky/sarcastic commentary. It's grating. Stick to Democracy Now! and On The Media.
