On this week’s Redacted Tonight, Lee talks about Reverend Ed Pinkney – the political prisoner you’ve never heard of. He’s slated to be locked up for years because he got in the way of a major corporation. Denver police arrest volunteers building micro-homes for the homeless, Chevron sues Ecuadorians for suing Chevron over Amazon oil spill, and Carlos Delgado explains why robots are scarier than capitalism. Also – John F. O’Donnell reports from the second Republican Presidential debate in Colorado.
For the first time in the company’s history, the McDonald’s franchise has been shrinking. Add on to that, Monsanto’s 26% drop in stocks, and it’s quite the sticky situation. Not for the general public, but for two of the world’s most evil companies. Redacted Tonight’s Lee Camp explains how public awareness and action causes giants like Monsanto and McDonald’s to struggle.
The Democratic presidential debate happened and, based on poll numbers, Bernie Sanders won the debate. According to CNN Hillary won the debate. This may be confusing, considering every poll after the debate gave concrete numbers showing Bernie’s victory. But when it comes to the media, numbers don’t matter – when you can report revisionist history. Redacted Tonight shows how the media is lying.
On this week’s Redacted Tonight, Lee explains why the public shouldn’t be complacent about the use of drone strikes. McDonald’s and Monsanto are struggling, and CNN is caught lying about Hilary’s campaign. Abby Feldman explains why happiness can’t be purchased. Also – John F. O’Donnell asks if criminal justice reform is here to stay or if it’s just a passing fad.
Recently, Iceland has prosecuted and jailed three more bankers involved in the Icelandic financial crash of 2008. This is great news, but Lee asks, why aren’t we doing the same? Lee follows up with shocking facts surrounding the number of U.S. bankers arrested and who we are willing to go after. From Redacted Tonight.
Watch as John asks hard hitting questions to reporters, wandering strangers, and maybe even a Presidential candidate? This and more on this week’s “Break Down!”

A new Snowden has leaked “The Drone Papers” to the public, Americans celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, and GMO lobbyists seek to protect Big Agra by pushing the D.A.R.K Act. Abby Feldman explains why locally sourced food is gauche and tacky. Also – We sent John F. O’Donnell to cover this first Democratic Presidential Debate in Las Vegas, and he has much to report.
New York has a policy of, “If you see something, say something,” and now it’s not just limited to suspicious packages. A new whistleblower campaign has been launched, ENCOURAGING Wall Street bankers to blow the whistle on their bosses! Lee Camp explains.
A deal has been reached on the Trans Pacific Partnership and this secret agreement between the government and corporations will herald a new world order! Get set to pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of Walmart, or whichever corporation is running your country. Lee Camp explains why the TPP will change the world as we know it – for the worse.
A Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan was bombed over the weekend. This is a very rare instance of a Nobel Peace Prize winner bombing another Peace Prize Winner. In fact, it’s the first. Also – these doctors don’t just have ironic bombs to worry about, the TPP will make their jobs that much harder as well! Lee Camp explains.
TPP approval is imminent and Lee explains why this will create a New World Order. South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham asks for federal aid despite previously voting against hurricane Sandy aid, Wall Street whistleblowing is now being encouraged, and Doctors Without Borders was bombed over the weekend by the U.S. military. Also – Abby Feldman asks: if refugees weren’t Syrian, how would we treat them?
Big Pharma has been telling us for years to take pills, unless we want to die impotent and miserable at the age of 35. Facts are facts, especially if they’re on drug commercials. Another fact is that we can actually get rid of Big Pharma! Lee Camp explains how on Redacted Tonight.
Big Pharma can be taken down and it wouldn’t cost that much. John Boehner resigns as Speaker of the House, Los Angeles decides to fix homelessness in case the Olympics come to town, and Abby Feldman sticks up for DEA sex parties. Also – John F. O’Donnell explains why we don’t heart protest music on the radio anymore.

Competition rewards hard work and creativity. It’s brought about innovations in medicine, technology, and even breakfast cereals! But competition also rewards slander, extortion, and sabotage. Instead of innovating, some sociopaths focus on destroying their opponents. Just look at Thomas Edison. Redacted Tonight explains.
A concert to save the world! That won’t save the world! Beyonce, Coldplay and Pearl Jam are joining forces for a music festival in the name of achieving Sustainable Development Goals for the UN – but really, it won’t do anything but more of the same. Lee Camp of Redacted Tonight explains.
