Counterpoint with Scott Harris

1) Yosef Getachew, Media and Democracy Program Director with Common Cause talks about how more than 120 Civil Rights & Democracy Groups have called on social media giants to take significant actions to combat election disinformation ahead of midterm elections and concern re: recent recordings that reveal the Republican Party strategy to target and potentially overturn votes in Democratic precincts and states by installing partisan poll workers to disrupt and subvert this November’s election results.

2) Andrew Lawrence, a senior researcher at Media Matters for America, discusses the group’s research on the dangerous amplification of hate and white supremacy on Fox News, as well as the UnFoxMyCableBox campaign designed to pressure your cable company to stop sending so much of your money to Fox even if you never watch Fox.

3) Pia Malaney, Senior Economist with the Institute For New Economic Thinking examines growing public concern about rising inflation, what the Federal Reserve is doing to address the steep rise in prices — and the little-discussed factor of corporate price gouging and profiteering.

4) Charlotte Dennett, an attorney, former investigative journalist who reported from the Middle East and co-author of, “Thy Will Be Done: The Conquest of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of Oil,” talks about her new book, “Follow the Pipelines Uncovering the Mystery of a Lost Spy and the Deadly Politics of the Great Game for Oil,” which digs into her father’s postwar counterintelligence work and death, as she reveals how competition among superpower intelligence networks, military, and Big Oil interests have fueled misguided foreign policy, and targeted killings that continue to this day.

Tidings from Hazel Kahan

This month, Hazel’s guest on Tidings is Los Angles-based educator and Jungian analyst William K. Grevatt, who will talk about his new book: “The Alchemy of Tyranny—A Jungian Perspective.” Guided by the acclaimed psychoanalyst Carl G. Jung’s interpretations of alchemical operations, Dr. Grevatt describes the “projections that are occurring consciously and unconsciously within the leaders and the populations of nations where this dark shift to the right is occurring” and why, 75 years after Hitler’s regime ended, we are watching demagogic leaders around the world return the pendulum’s swing to fascism.
