Ignoring Washington’s Role in Yemen Carnage, 60 Minutes Paints US as Savior

New York (FAIR) – In one of the most glaring, power-serving omissions in some time, CBS News’ 60 Minutes (11/19/17) took a deep dive into the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and did not once mention the direct role the United States played in creating, perpetuating and prolonging a crisis that’s left over 10,000 civilians dead, 2 million displaced, and an estimated 1 million with cholera.

  • How The Turkish Military Lost Power by Trying to Keep it

    Ankara (GPA) – For the first time in the history of Turkey, it appears the military is actually accountable to the civilian government, in large part as a result of the old guard’s own decisions.
