This week on CounterSpin: You’re going to be hearing a lot more from corporate America, declares one press account, about getting the nation’s finances in order. That’s due to the Fix the Debt campaign, a group of CEOs and business heads with supposedly moderate reasonable plans to cut the deficit. So for those concerned that we wouldn’t be hearing enough from corporate America, worry not. What should we know about Fix the Debt and their plans? We’ll hear from Sarah Anderson, director of the Institute for Policy Studies’ Global Economy Project.

Also on the show: Election night was good for statewide marijuana initiatives, with bills legalizing recreational use of pot winning in Colorado and Washington, for example. But are the prohibitionists really on the run? We’ll talk with former CounterSpin host and Extra! publisher Martin Lee, author of the new book Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana, about the role corporate propaganda has played in pot debates.

One thought on “Fix the Debt

  1. I heard Sarah Andersons’s summary of the corporate attempt to mislead the American public about their actual goals on KKFI this morning. It was perhaps the best summary of any I have heard recently. It really connects the dots in the most effective way I have heard so far. Hopefully her voice will get out there. Would like to see her on more news programs.
