With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Amnesty International released a new report on Sept. 12 titled, "New Order, Same Abuses: Unlawful Detentions and Torture in Iraq," which highlights concerns about the treatment of Iraqi prisoners now under the control of Iraqi security forces, after the U.S. transferred their authority to the Baghdad government.

Interview with Julia Harumi Mass, staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California, conducted by Scott Harris
A federal appeals court ruled on Sept. 8 that former prisoners held by the CIA could not proceed with a lawsuit over abuse and torture they claim they were subjected to in foreign prisons. The judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit by a 6 to 5 vote dismissed a law suit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of 5 former prisoners. The judges based their decision on the government's assertion under former President George Bush, and President Barack Obama, that permitting such a lawsuit would expose government secrets and endanger national security. The ACLU says they will appeal the case up to the Supreme Court. Story continues
Interview with Sam Husseini, communications director with the Institute for Public Accuracy, conducted by Scott Harris
Over the last several months, America has seen an explosion of hate and fear targeting Muslims at home and abroad. Conservative politicians and right wing talk show hosts have led an ugly campaign to oppose the proposed location of an Islamic community center 2 blocks from Ground Zero in New York City. More recently a little-known Florida pastor's threat to burn the Muslim holy book, the Koran, on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks received extensive coverage on cable TV news and talk radio, as well as international attention. Although the burning of the Koran was postponed, angry protests took place around the world, some of which turned violent, resulting in deaths and injuries in Afghanistan and Kashmir. Story continues
