For the week of March 6, 2022:
It took Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to cause Canadian telecoms to remove Russian state-owned RT America from their channel menus.
Before the invasion, and before the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission notified a Chinese state-owned company that it was considering banning CCTV-4 and CGTN from Canadian cable.
Laura Harth of the human rights group Safeguard Defenders joins theBreaker.news Podcast host Bob Mackin to explain the complaint about the Chinese Communist Party propaganda organs.
Plus, Victor Matheson, sports economist from the College of the Holy Cross, returns, to discuss the equal rights lawsuit settlement for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team and the Major League Baseball lockout.
Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines and commentary.
