Counterpoint with Scott Harris

This week’s guests:

  1. Zachary Lockman, professor of history and Middle Eastern and Islamic studies at New York University, will discuss the current Israel-Hamas war, the US role in the conflict, civilian loss of life, and the danger of a wider war in the Middle East.
  2. Jennifer Bendery, senior politics reporter with Huffington Post, talks about her recent article, “New Speaker Mike Johnson’s Long History With The Religious Right.”
  3. Craig Aaron, co-CEO of the media democracy group Free Press, discusses the hopeful news that the FCC may reinstate net neutrality protections, which prohibit internet service providers from speeding up, slowing down or blocking specific content, applications or websites.
  4. Spencer Cantrell, JD, senior advisor for implementation with the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions, discusses the most recent mass shooting in Maine, her group’s efforts to find solutions to epidemic gun violence, and why our political system has not responded to overwhelming public support of common sense gun regulation legislation.
