Weekly Video Roundup
Posted on Feb 23, 2007
This week’s collection of Truthdig-flavored videos includes a hard look at the real Iraq; Fox News’ smear campaign against Barack Obama; and the gayest place John Amaechi has ever seen.
No. 1: The Real Iraq
Britain’s Channel 4 News highlights the images and stories from Iraq that have been left out of mainstream news reporting.
No. 2: Meet the Press for Idiots
No. 3: Fox News Targets Obama
Documentarian Robert Greenwald has collected some of Fox News’ worst smears against Barack Obama, who sensibly responded to the attacks by freezing out Fox reporters. At the end of the video, Greenwald urges the Nevada Democratic Party, which plans to allow the “fair and balanced” network to host a debate, to do the same.
No. 4: Gay Former NBA Player Takes Maher Into the Locker Room
John Amaechi tells Bill Maher that NBA locker rooms are “the gayest places I have ever seen”—full of ostensibly macho guys primping and preening in front of each other.
