    Continuing a conversation concerning the release of documents from Britain’s FCO, former parliamentarian Chris Williamson gives his thoughts on media bias and propaganda in relation to Reuters, BBC and other media outlets.

    It has been made clear that Biden’s top pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, is not highly favored in the senate. Garland Nixon talks in detail with the Fault Line team on the reasons behind this boisterous house battle. The team also discusses Biden’s border immigration policies.

    The former president of Bolivia, Jeanine Añez, and members of her former cabinet are currently under investigation for economic damage in the form of a loan from the IMF worth over $340 million. Wyatt Reed, political analyst and producer of By Any Means Necessary, describes the ramifications of this loan and what it means for the Bolivian people.

    The EU has been having issues distributing Covid-19 vaccines, especially in Germany where citizens have proclaimed that they do not think the vaccine is effective. EU correspondent Peter Oliver speaks on the outrage of German citizens over the lack of vaccines and the lack of trust in their effectiveness.
