Corporate news has infantilized the national discourse. We need to tell people the whole truth, as best we can, about the urgency of this historical moment.

Corporate news rarely reveals the underlying interests that motivate individuals and classes to act as they do. In fact, they barely recognize that we live in a class society.

We take on important news stories as a way into a deeper examination of the economic, social and political forces that drive important events. Our aim is to reveal the economic relationships that are the foundation of political and social struggle.



We know the world can only be understood in the process of changing it.

    Weaponizing Antisemitism to Politically Assassinate the French Left – Sari Hanafi Pt. 1/2

    Against all expectations, the left coalition, aptly calling itself the “New Popular Front,” was able to win the most seats - 182 out of 577 seats - in the final round of the French parliamentary elections. French-Palestinian sociologist Dr. Sari Hanafi explains how the left quickly formed a political alliance to keep Marine Le Pen’s far-right party, the National Rally, from gaining enough seats to govern in the French parliament. He delves into the weaponization of antisemitism to smear Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the leader of France Unbowed, which is the largest leftist party within the New Popular Front.

    Pentagon’s Outrageous Anti-China Operation Threatened Lives in the Philippines – Col. Larry Wilkerson

    A recent Reuters investigation uncovered a scandalous Pentagon operation that sought to discredit the Chinese Sinovac vaccine and sow distrust among the population in the Philippines towards China. Col. Larry Wilkerson discusses previous unlawful Strategic Information Operations (SIOs) launched by the Pentagon and the particular depravity of this operation initiated in Spring 2020 under President Trump’s administration, at a time when countries such as the Philippines did not possess their own vaccine manufacturing capacity and were accepting a free supply of vaccines from China.

    Left Alliance Challenging Far-Right Takeover in France – Renaud Lambert

    Left Alliance Challenging Far-Right Takeover in France – Renaud Lambert

    In recent EU parliamentary elections, Marine Le Pen's far-right National Rally party won 31.4% of the vote, while the coalition representing President Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance party garnered an embarrassing 14%. Renaud Lambert, journalist at Le Monde Diplomatique, contextualizes the rise of the far-right, and how President Macron's decision to call snap legislative elections on June 30 and July 7 has prompted the left to form the New Popular Front, an unlikely coalition of four left-wing parties. Will this left alliance garner enough support to torpedo a far-right victory in the French parliament?

    Beyond Genocide in Gaza: Settler Violence in the West Bank – Omer Bartov

    As Israel continues its campaign of destruction in Gaza, the situation in the West Bank has deteriorated, with the Israeli Defense Forces as well as settlers killing over 500 Palestinians in the West Bank since October 7. Holocaust and genocide studies scholar Dr. Omer Bartov unpacks Israel’s genocidal strategy in the Gaza Strip, and describes the surge of settler violence towards Palestinians. Israel's far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir has not only armed the settlers but has been incorporating them into Israeli forces operating in the West Bank.

A must listen to.

Great Pod!!

Radio Amin ,

The most valuable and comprehensive podcast there is

Paul Jay is a treasure. His work via The Analysis picks up where he left off from the Real News Network and presents a thoroughly nuanced, multifaceted examination of all matters of the day. The guest list is also a treasure trove, consisting of the best minds in journalism, history, sociology, economics, activism, and politics. This podcast has been a lighthouse among the fog of partisan, commercialized, bereft, and toxic media within the tragic reality and times we find ourselves in. It has been a priceless resource and gift for me; I can’t recommend enough or sing it’s praise in the manner it deserves. A must.

Excellent Conversations/Interviews

Paul Jay is probably one of the best interviewers out there in all of media. Unfortunately, Paul at times has been relegated to and diminished to the sidelines by YouTube, Apple, Google, Cable, etc. Which has made him a newfound stalwart in independent media online, podcasts, YouTube, Patreon etc. He is always highly informed which allows both great conversations with guests as well as insightful questions but is also capable of shutting up and finding out information when he/ audience doesn’t know something or that particulate subject is not in his wheelhouse.
