Citations Needed News Brief: 60 Minutes' Yemen Whitewash

In this Patron-only News Brief, Adam and I discuss recent omissions by 60 Minutes and The Washington Post of the U.S. role in bombing Yemen, the broader effort to throw America's responsibility for creating famine and disease into a memory hole, and shifting human rights standards for U.S. and its allies.

[Note: This is a News Brief update on recent Yemen coverage; a full-length episode on the topic is coming soon.]
