All eyes remained on the government this week as Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and Michigan officials were charged with manslaughter in relation to the Flint water crisis. This Sunday on MNN, we’re putting a few others in the hot seat with programs focused on fake news and HIV criminalization.
First at 7pm, tune in to an all new episode of “Represent NYC” for a discussion about Trump’s rocky relationship with the media. Then at 8pm, settle in for an educational episode of NBLCA’s Health Action TV, which will discuss the outdated laws that punish individuals with HIV.
7pm - Represent NYC: Journalism and The War Against the Truth
Trump has labeled the mainstream media as the enemy of the American people and when the administration cries “fake news!,” the public is left to wonder: who is telling the truth?
This Sunday on “Represent NYC,” Lincoln Mitchell, political analyst and author of “The Democracy Promotion Paradox,” talks with Amsterdam News Editor in Chief Elinor Tatum and Haaretz writer Marisa Fox about Trump’s animosity toward the media and how to stop the spread of fake news.
“Represent NYC” airs every Sunday at 7pm and repeats on Wednesdays at 9pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33), MNN's HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or streaming live on mnn.org.
9:30pm - NBLCA’S Health Action TV: HIV Criminalization
Before HIV was fully understood, states enacted laws that punished infected people for acts like spitting because they believed it lead to the spread of the disease. While this has since been disproven, the laws against those with HIV still exist.
This Sunday on National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS (NBLCA)’s Health Action TV, NBLCA’s Vice President of Special Projects, Melissa Baker, talks to VOCAL-NY’s Reginald Thomas Brown and The Center for HIV Law and Policy’s Kate Boulton about HIV criminalization and the efforts to get rid of these outdated laws.
Tune in on Sunday at 9:30 pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33) and MNN’s HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or streaming live on mnn.org.
