Billions for Space Force; no clean water for Flint -- interview with Karl Grossman
August 31, 2018

CounterSpin, the popular radio program created by FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) features Beyond Nuclear board member, Karl Grossman, discussing President Trump's unpopular plan to create a "Space Force."

Listen here.

And here is the intro from Counterspin:

This week on CounterSpin: A popular internet meme says, “I have a question about Space Force; when is Flint getting clean water?” But while social media reflect complaints that the Trump administration’s plans to “address space as a developing war-fighting domain,” as Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has it, will mean still more resources channeled away from social programs to Warmongering, Inc., that line of questioning has so far had little place in corporate media coverage.

We’ll talk about the prospect of war in space with longtime FAIR associate Karl Grossman, journalism professor at State University of New York/College at Old Westbury, and author of the books Weapons in Space and The Wrong Stuff: The Space Program’s Nuclear Threat to Our Planet, among others.
