Thom reflects on the passing of retired U.S. Representative John Conyers, Jr., Donald Trump getting Boos and “Lock Him Up” chants at World Series Game 5, and studies the many reported deaths of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi before last weekend's announcement. Judd Legum at Popular Information speaks with Thom about new news about facebook. Book Club reading, "Mindf*ck: Cambridge Analytica and the Plot to Break America" by Christopher Wylie. Pam Vogel from Media Matters joins Thom to talk about the fairness doctrine and what Sinclair Broadcasting is doing. Sinclair Broadcasting had only one commentator, Boris Epstheyn who used to work for the Trump campaign and was briefly in the administration. He is now their chief political commentator. This gave just one editorial voice, and this gave no editorial balance. Thom reads from "Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts" by David E. McCraw. Pacifica Radio Board Vice Chair Sabrina Jacobs brings an update on the pause of New York's WBAI station.
