As Biden Issues Executive Orders, Critics Say They Don't Go Far Enough
In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by by comedian and activist Lee Camp, host and head writer of Redacted Tonight and author of the recent book "Bullet Points and Punch Lines," to discuss his new article on Consortium News, "What Biden Can Do Without Congress (But Won't)," why Biden's much-hyped slate of executive orders seems designed to put the left back to sleep, and why it's no surprise Biden isn't doing more to help struggling Americans. In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Hannah Dickinson, professor and organizer with Geneva Women’s Assembly in Geneva, New York, to discuss the 140,000 women's jobs lost in the US last month, why nearly all of those who lost employment were Black or Latin, and how capitalism extracts so much unpaid labor from women. In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Nate Wallace, co-host of Red Spin Sports podcast, for another edition of our weekly segment "The Red Spin Report." They discuss why more than one in four NCAA basketball coaches doesn't think conference tournaments should be held this year, why NCAA recruiting rules are regularly violated by big teams, and the disturbing implications of the league's refusal to compensate student-athletes. Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Gerald Horne, Moores Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston, and author of the new book “The Bittersweet Science: Racism, Racketeering, and the Political Economy of Boxing,” to discuss Biden's rejection of former president Trump's "1776" educational initiative, issues with the "American Descendants of Slavery" movement, and what's motivating the Biden's assertion that Juan Guaido is the president of Venezuela.

1001 days (w/ Suat Karlikaya & Burcu Ayan)
Production workers at Cargill Turkey were unfairly dismissed on April 17, 2018, while trying to unionize. Listeners will probably recognize the name Cargill: based in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Cargill is the largest privately held corporation in the United States. And Cargill’s reach is truly global, with operations around the world focusing on the trading, purchasing, distributing, and producing of agricultural commodities, energy, livestock, and ingredients for processed food. When workers at a Cargill starch plant in Bursa-Orhangazi tried to unionize under Tekgıda-İş (the Tobacco, Drink, Food and Allied Workers Trade Union of Turkey), they were dismissed for their union activity. Under Turkish law, companies like Cargill can simply pay fines for such human rights violations and factor it into the “cost of doing business”; however, these same companies are not required to reinstate unjustly dismissed workers, even if Turkish courts have definitively ruled that the dismissals were illegal. For over 1000 days, these workers and Tekgıda-İş have been fighting an ongoing battle with Cargill to have their jobs reinstated. In this special episode (our first interview that is accessible to both English and Turkish speakers), we talk with Suat Karlikaya, a lead organizer with Tekgıda-İş, about Cargill Turkey’s retaliatory dismissal of workers who tried to unionize—and what listeners in and beyond Turkey can do to show solidarity. English and Turkish translations are provided by Burcu Ayan of the IUF (the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers' Associations).

The Late Neil Sheehan, The New York Times, Vietnam, and Daniel Ellsberg Pt. 2 w/ Jim Naureckas
On this edition of Parallax Views we continue our examination of the late New York Times journalist Neil Sheehan, this time covering a news story published in NYT after his death by reporter Janny Scott proclaiming to tell the true story of the Pentagon Papers and Sheehan's involvement in the affair that was not previously known. The article, entitled "Now It Can Be Told: How Neil Sheehan Got the Pentagon Papers", seems to treat Neil Sheehan as the true hero of the the saga while portraying the story's whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg as a fearful neurotic with a penchant for making foolish mistakes. The Pentagon Papers, which were a secret Pentagon study of the Vietnam War commissioned by Robert McNamara that exposed how the U.S. government had been deceiving the public about the war effort, is a monumental case in the history of 20th century politics and journalism. As such Janny Scott's story, in which Sheehan gives a different version of events, is an important development. Jim Naureckis of the media watchdog organization Fair and Accuracy in Media (FAIR), however, argues the Scott story is misleading. As such Naureckis and FAIR released an Action Alert to its readers entitled "What Can ‘Now Be Told’ by NYT About Pentagon Papers Isn’t Actually True". Jim joins us to discuss the problems with the NYT article purporting to tell a new truth about the Pentagon Papers as well as discussing the problems of valorizing journalists as heroes while downplaying the importance and bravery of whistleblowers like Ellsberg. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views.
