    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan talk about the main proponents of RussiaGate who aggressively fed false stories and narratives to the public. Will there be lasting career damage for some of the most egregious offenders, or is this mendacity acceptable in the mainstream media and our current political climate?

    Guests:

    Patrick Henningsen — Journalist & Founder of: 21stCenturyWire.com | Fallout from RussiaGate and The Reporting of Mainstream Media

    Michael Krieger — Founder of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com | As RussiaGate Dies, Big Tech Censorship Lives On…

    Sut Jhally - Professor of Communication at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Executive Producer of the film, 'The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's PR War in the U.S.' | Understanding Israel's Public Relations Machine in the United States

    Joe Lauria — Editor-in-Chief at Consortium News | An Update on Julian Assange & Accountability for RussiaGate


    Many members of the mainstream media have been further exposed for their poor journalistic practices and standards by how they reported on RussiaGate and the Mueller Investigation. Patrick Henningsen, Journalist & Founder of 21stCenturyWire.com, joins Garland and Lee on today's show to discuss the ongoing fallout from the RussiaGate saga, where the mainstream media goes from here, and the threat that WikiLeaks and other organizations continue to present to traditional media outlets.

    Despite the RussiaGate narrative crumbling to pieces in the wake of Robert Mueller's investigation coming to a close, new censorship on social media from Silicon Valley's big tech firms will still remain. Michael Krieger, Founder of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com, returns to the program to talk about some of the real-world lasting impacts of RussiaGate, the role social media plays in forming grassroots movements, and the need to develop sustainable strategies for using social media and creating political coalitions moving forward.

    Without question, the pro-Israel Lobby in the United States is a powerful force especially inside the halls of Congress. University of Massachusetts Professor Sut Jhally is the Executive Producer of the film, 'The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's PR War in the U.S.,' and he joins today's episode of Fault Lines to talk about his film, the recent backlash against Rep. Ilhan Omar, and the nature of the massive public relations campaign that attempts to control the debate about issues related to Israel and Palestine.

    For the final segment, the hosts are joined by Joe Lauria, the Editor-in-Chief at Consortium News, for a conversation about Julian Assange's current status and how the RussiaGate story has evolved since its inception. Could Julian Assange potentially be prosecuted under the Espionage Act, how does Chelsea Manning's arrest connect to Assange's situation, and how has the US political system been altered by RussiaGate and the Mueller Investigation?
