Finance Bros Buy the News, Acceptable Corruption, & Greg Palast, Trump Steals 2020

Finance Bros buy the Toronto Star. What does it mean for media, the truth, and working people in Canada? Journalist Ethan Cox joins us to discuss what it all means and the importance of independent media in Canada.

The WE scandal has made us ask the question, just what is the acceptable level of corruption in government? With the PM testifying today, for his THIRD alleged ethical misstep, we'll look at what this means for Canadians.

Then we're joined by investigative journalist Greg Palast whose new book, How Trump Stole 2020, examines voter suppression and the rigging of the US election by Republicans. It's a warning about the future and gives us a look into the conservative playbook.
