Noam Chomsky

Isn't it time you did a long interview with Noam Chomsky before he dies rather than a tepid obituary?

Interview Mearsheimer

Media has totally forgotten the etiquette of declaring conflicts

I have been thinking about this for a while now and I think it's a cultural phenomenon. The media have totally forgotten the habit of declaring the conflicts of interest. Whether it's The Atlantic where Anne Applebaum writes long hawkish columns in supporting of arming Ukraine without mentioning that she is married to a hawkish politician of the most hawkish Eastern European country (Poland) or whether it's the Institute for the Study of War or ISW which is so named to hide its conflict with Victoria Nuland. It's terrible that there's no criticism of this blatant dishonest behavior from NYT or CNN. I mean, how are these different from other state media such as RT and North Korean state TV??

Counter Points Branding

I know you guys announced some logo updates and wanted to say I DM'd Saagar on IG of a possible Counter Points logo. Check it out and then you can hire me! haha love the show and thank you guys!

Third-party campaigns

Will you cover third-party campaigns as thoroughly as you cover republican and democratic campaigns? I truly believe one very realistic solution to a lot of our political issues is voting third-party. I appreciate your time. Have a great day.
