In this round-up of the week, the US media shows shocking partisan bias as America sinks deeper into conflict, the UK is faced with the evidence of Russia’s attempts to do it harm and Britain’s climate campaigners turn against each other. Support this channel: https://patreon.com/mallenbakerThe Mallen Baker Show is aimed at all people who see themselves as change makers, with commentary on issues and change movements with a particular focus on climate change and environment, social issues, free speech and corporate social responsibility. This episode talks about The Russia Report, looking at Russian interference in the UK elections, Brexit and Scottish Independence referendum. It looks at President Trump, blaming the Black Lives Matter protests for spreading Covid-19. It looks at Isaiah Jackson, who knelt on the neck of a two-year-old toddler to promote Black Lives Matter, and we talk about the Beyond Politics Party, offshoot of Extinction Rebellion, brainchild of Roger Hallam, which this week covered the buildings of environmental NGOs such as Greenpeace with paint in protest at their failure to rebel against the government.ReferencesPaper on Black Lives Matter protests and social distancinghttps://www.nber.org/papers/w27408.pdfPaper on Black Lives Matter protests and social distancinghttps://www.nber.org/papers/w27408.pdf
