US government-backed corporate censorship is escalating online, while France's neoliberal President Emmanuel Macron lurches hard right, cracking down on civil liberties, protests, and the Muslim community.
Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with Ali Abunimah of The Electronic Intifada about attacks on alternative media and independent journalism by Western "democracies", and how Silicon Valley companies are censoring Palestinians.
We then discuss the French government's discrimination against Muslims, repression of anti-neoliberal protests, and attempt to criminalize filming police brutality.
