CounterSpin is a program of media analysis and activism from FAIR, the national media watch group. It exposes the power of corporate influence, and the inaccurate reporting, narrow political debates, sexism, racism and homophobia in the media.

Produced by Janine Jackson, Steve Randall and Peter Hart, CounterSpin provides a critical examination of the major stories of the week and exposes what the mainstream media might have missed in their coverage. Combining lively discussion and a thoughtful media critique, CounterSpin is unlike any other show on the dial.

CounterSpin exposes and highlights biased and inaccurate news; censored stories; sexism, racism and homophobia in the news; the power of corporate influence; gaffes and goofs by leading TV pundits; TV news' narrow political spectrum; attacks on free speech; and more.
