Counterspin - Thr 6pm

THIS WEEK: It's understatement to say that media characterizations of the Affordable Care Act vary wildly. But so much analysis is devoted to political football, when health insurance is an issue calling out for news people can use. Adam Gaffney, a physician and writer at theprogressivephysician.org, looks beyond the media hype. Also on the show, it wasn't that long ago that many people believed the internet would be a kind of utopia. A new book challenges that idea, and shows how in many ways the net is anything but revolutionary. It's called The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age. We'll speak with author Astra Taylor.   Drawing on an international network of voices, CounterSpin dissects news coverage of a wide range of issues and current events. CounterSpin provides a critical examination of the major stories every week, and exposes what the mainstream media might have missed in their own coverage.
