I first encountered GritTV with Laura Flanders after following a link from one of the show’s recent guests. I have to say I really enjoy this program and it is part of my move as a news consumer to move beyond mainstream media to independent and/or public media. To date I find that independent media covers more issues than mainstream media and the broadcasts are less biased for either the “right” or the “left.” Looking to this story I was very interested in Grit’s coverage of the Iranian election as well as its focus on a new film about stoning as a form of legal punishment.
This link is a full episode so site back relax and learn something that the main networks probably will not give a quarter of the time this program does.
Here is a short clip from the show also dealing with the Iranian election:
