This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Jan. 15, 2014 for week ending Jan. 24, 2014

"Most of this reconstruction (in Haiti) has been just a 'poster child' for disaster capitalism. Essentially, the same way we saw the banks profit off the disasters in our economy in 2007 and 2008, we see these NGO (non-governmental organization) mafia, if I can call it that, coming down into Haiti and really just getting hugely rich off of this disaster."

– Interview with Kim Ives, co-founder and an editor at Haiti Liberte’ newspaper, on the situation in Haiti four years after the 2010 earthquake

Four years ago on Jan. 12, 2010, a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti’s capital Port au Prince and the surrounding area, killing an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 people. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and with large swaths of the capital completely destroyed, about 1.5 million Haitians were made homeless.  Story continues

chemicalspill

Last week, a 7,500-gallon chemical spill in the Elk River, just over a mile upstream from the intake for the public water supply for a large percentage of West Virginians, caused the governor to ban the use of water for any human use beyond flushing toilets. Even boiling the water was not considered safe. Three hundred thousand residents of the capital, Charleston, and several other counties were told to rely on bottled water.  Story continues

CBS' "60 Minutes" Adopts the Fox News Playbook

MP3  MP3

Interview with Brad Friedman, independent investigative journalist, blogger and broadcaster, conducted by Scott Harris

60minutes

The CBS network’s award-winning news program, “60 Minutes,” has suffered a series of embarrassing journalistic failures and misstatements of fact in recent months. In October, the news magazine’s segment investigating the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 was discredited when an interview with an ex-security officer in Libya, Dylan Davies, provided a false account of the events surrounding the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The segment produced by Lara Logan was criticized for its bias in favor of Republican-talking points attempting to elevate the events in Benghazi to a major scandal for the Obama administration.  Story continues
