Episode 58: "An Exceptional Lack of Innocence" ft. Danny Haiphong

EHey, y'all! This week, we weren't able to record a current events segment, but we did wanna share one urgent bit of news with you. The Trump Admininstration announced it would be officially pulling U.S. troops out of North Eastern Syria, essentially green-lighting the invasion of territory held by Rojava's revolutionaries. Pearson shares the SDF general command's statement on the matter and urges international solidarity demonstrations. Danny Haiphong joins us for the hour to chat about the book he co-authored, American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People’s History of Fake News—From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror. We critique about U.S. imperialism and discuss the ways the U.S. asserts its innocence even as it manipulates and exploits geopolitics. - Pick up a copy of American Exceptionalism and American Innocence! - Follow Danny on Twitter. - Check out Black Agenda Report online.
