On this week's program, we hear a recent speech by author and peace organizer Medea Benjamin.

Medea Benjamin helped found the fair-trade organization Global Exchange,
and the womens' peace group Code Pink. Her previous books include
"Kingdom of the Unjust" and "Drone Warfare." She spoke at the Hillside Club

Video and internet journalist Abby Martin makes a return visit to the program, and speaks with Mickey about how corporate media obfuscates the truth to serve U.S. power and its allies, in Palestine, Yemen, Venezuela and elsewhere. In the second half of the show, Chase Palmieri of Tribeworthy.com revisits the program, following a recent remark from celebrity entrepreneur Elon Musk that there ought to be a way for the public to rate the work of journalists. Palmieri explains how Tribeworthy.com does exactly that, and summarizes how to use it.
Abby Martin hosts "The Empire Files" on Telesur TV, and is the founder of Mediaroots.org.  Chase Palmieri is cofounder of Tribeworthy.com; his background in the restaurant business inspired him to create a site where readers can evaluate news articles, in the same way as Yelp.com offers a place for restaurant ratings.
