July 27, 2018 | Amy Goodman: We continue our interview with Noam Chomsky, world-renowned dissident, linguist and author, now in Tucson at the University of Arizona. I asked him about a recent mix-up on Fox & Friends, in which the hosts thought they were interviewing former Democratic congressional candidate, a current one, Ann Kirkpatrick of Arizona, who supports Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE, but, in fact, they were actually speaking to a Massachusetts Democratic congressional candidate, Barbara L’Italien, who opposes ICE.

Here is how the interview started.

Amy Goodman is an American award-winning broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author.

August 13, 2018 | We don’t usually think of fake news and conspiracy theories as children’s problems, but new research suggests that childhood fantasy might pave the way for people to buy into false narratives in adulthood. Knowing this, the researchers tell Inverse, sheds light on the ways we can protect adults from falling prey to these narratives, especially as fake news becomes increasingly hard to avoid.

Fantasy realms and make-believe are thought to make kids feel less vulnerable by giving them a sense of control or order in a chaotic world. Believing in conspiracy theories and fake news later in life has largely the same effect: These ideas give a sense of order to a world in which things don’t often fit with how we think the world should be.

Trump, Corporate Media Are Both Enemies of the People

https://www.truthdig.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/burnettstill2-850x503.jpg

CNN's Erin Burnett reports about the Trump presidency during a June 6 broadcast. (CNN)

The mainstream media should be taken to task, but not for the same reasons the president uses in his attacks on the press.

Paul Street, Truthdig

Aug 23, 2018 | CNN’s liberal and anti-Trump talk show host Erin Burnett was in crisis mode last week. She was rolling her eyes, anxious for the fate of the republic. The cause of her angst? A Gallup poll showing that 57 percent of the nation’s Democrats now respond more favorably to the word “socialism” than they do to “capitalism”—this compared with 47 percent of Democrats who prefer “capitalism” over “socialism.”

Burnett interviewed Jen Psaki, a Democratic commentator and former communications director in the Obama administration, and a gloating Republican political commentator named Scott Jennings. She and her two guests agreed that this dreadful socialism business augured certain defeat for the Democrats in 2018 and 2020.

Paul Street, Truthdig Contributor, holds a doctorate in U.S. history from Binghamton University. He is former vice president for research and planning of the Chicago Urban League. Street is also the author of numerous books
, , including “Racial Oppression in the Global Metropolis” (2007), “The Empire’s New Clothes: Barack Obama in the Real World of Power” (2010), and “They Rule: The 1% v. Democracy” (2014), and a regular contributor to Counterpunch, Z Magazine/ZNet, Black Agenda Report and teleSUR English. He has taught American history at several Chicago-area colleges and universities.
