Lot of rumbling lately about Russia and incursions – minor or otherwise – into Ukraine. There's no better resource for the latest updates on this than our man in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. He looks at a number of topics today, including hastily scheduled and ultimately unproductive negotiations between Russia and the U.S. regarding Ukraine, Biden's press conference last week and the implications from that, and the true state of Putin's government and the rest of Russia. He also discusses the pervasive surveillance state in China and what journalists will have to face during the upcoming Olympic games.

The JCPOA, known informally as the Iran Nuclear Deal, is close to being resurrected and there are many myths propagated by the media surrounding that deal that just aren't true. Joining us today is Sean Durns (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst in CAMERA's Washington DC office. He looks at some of these myths, including that Israel is on board with resurrecting the Deal and the Trump administration cozied up to hardliners in Tehran – both of which are false. The media glosses over the truth to promote narratives but the devil is always in the details.
