    At the top of our countdown we have the media and corporate double standards surrounding Maria Sharapova and how they’re indicative of anti-Russian sentiment.

    We follow that up with some words about what Pope Francis meant when he declared that Europe is undergoing an “Arab invasion”. The next thing that we discuss is the Venezuelan ‘opposition’ and their announcement that they’ll use all means at their disposal in order to depose of President Maduro. Drawing near the end of our episode, we talk a bit about the US’ deadliest-ever drone strike that it just carried out in Somalia. Finally, this week’s show ends by explaining why Erdogan decided to seize the Zaman news outlet and how this destroyed the last veneer of Turkish ‘democracy’.
