On The Money with Peter Hebert, “Freedom Flotilla Two and I Am Awake,” July 8, 2011

Filed under: Commentary — Peter Hebert @ 10:35 PM

This half hour installment of On The Money with Peter Hebert opens with commentary on Israel’s propaganda war against the freedom flotillas and the complicity of the mainstream media in delivering a one sided narrative. The show closes with a 10 minute segment titled “I Am Awake,” and is Mr. Hebert’s thumbs up response to those who developed the You Tube video by the same title. This is a pre recorded show.

    Afterwards, Glenn Greenwald had to say this about the biased Media; I was just on MSNBC talking about Israel, the Gaza blockade and the flotilla attack with Eliot Spitzer, who was guest-hosting for Dylan Ratigan. It was a rather contentious discussion, though quite illustrative of how Israel is (and is not) typically discussed on American television, so I’m posting the whole 8-minute segment below. Two points: (1) before I was on, Spitzer had on an Israel-defending law professor, followed by Netanyahu’s former Chief of Staff, and both of them (along with Spitzer) were spewing pure Israeli propaganda in uninterrupted and unchallenged fashion; at the end of Spitzer’s discussions with them, he asked them to “stick around just in case,” and once I was left, he brought at least one of them back on to respond to what I said without challenge; (2) literally 90 seconds before my segment was about to begin, the new cam and sound system I just acquired stopped working, forcing me to unplug everything and use only my laptop cam and mic, which caused the technical aspects to be less than ideal (though still perfectly workable)
