Bad Faith is two shows in one: it's a panel show about politics and pop culture with a rotating cast of performers and politicians, artists and activists, writers and radicals; and it's a two-way podcast where two people from two very different parts of the left make the case for one less terrible world. 

Briahna Joy Gray (@briebriejoy) is a former attorney, National Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, co-host of campaign podcast Hear The Bern, and a journalist who is early enough in her political career that she remains (tragically) sanguine.

Virgil Texas (@virgiltexas) is an internet user and co-host of Chapo Trap House.

This week, Briahna speaks to journalist & activist Abby Martin about the spate of left media censorship that's occurred over the past few weeks. RT America, Russia's 24/7 English-language news channel, has been shuttered -- presumably because the cost of sanctions on Russia made it difficult to sustain, while RT has been banned entirely in Europe. Over 600 episodes of the show Abby hosted for 3 years at RT have been wiped from the internet, along with shows by other RT hosts like Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges & Lee Camp. Even The Hill was barred from YouTube last week, suggesting even corporate-backed news outlets aren't safe. Abby breaks down what happened, how left media can survive under capitalism, accusations of bias against Russia TV, her advocacy for Palestine rights, and what American media is getting wrong about Ukraine.
