U.S. Media Agreed to Cover Up the Location of a CIA Drone Base

Each week, Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) takes on the media's biggest blunders. This week on FAIR TV we take a look at the the "informal arrangement" between several media outlets--including the New York Times and the Washington Post-- to not report news about a CIA drone base.


We also talk about the curious standard for "confirming" news from Israeli government officials, and we take a look at the 60 Minutes softball interview with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
