Segment 1: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(
26 minutes)

The lines between politics and branding have been blurred, not just in recent years, but in a gradual effort by corporations to commodify media and 
politics. So says our guest this week, Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, joining Laura to discuss her most 
recent book No Is Not Enough. How will the movements of resistance and creation challenge a “reality TV politics?,” and where is it already
happening? Klein sets out the map. Plus, a short report on water protector Red Fawn Fallis, who faces an imprisonment for life sentence as a result of her participation in the Standing Rock protests of 2016.

 

Segment 2: "How Fake News Does Real Harm"
(6.5 minutes)

On April 14, 2014, the terrorist organization Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok, Nigeria. Around the world, the crime became epitomized by the slogan BringBackOurGirls — but in Nigeria, government officials called the crime a hoax, confusing and delaying any efforts to rescue the girls. In this powerful talk, journalist Stephanie Busari points to the Chibok tragedy to explain the deadly danger of fake news and what we can do to stop it.
 

Segment 3: "Over Troubled Waters"
(45 minutes)

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the largest estuary on the west coast of the Americas, is a national treasure being squandered by greed. In this 
visually rich documentary, Ed Begley, Jr. narrates the story of the battle being fought by the people of the Delta to protect the region they love and encourage saner water policies for all of the people of California.

 

Segment 4: "The Story of Citizens United vs. FEC"
(9 minutes)

An exploration of the inordinate power that corporations exercise in our democracy.
 

Segment 5: "This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Health"
(22.5 minutes)

America is “treating” mental illness through incarceration - and the price we are paying both in dollars and human capital is enormous. This film 
focuses on the problems with criminalizing mental health, told through first-hand accounts.
