On this episode of the Gap, Tammy and Althea have a news round-up for ya, starting with Defunding Disinformation. The nonprofit CheckMyAds.Org is working to pull online advertisers away from extremist and right-wing sites. Their next project? Fox News. Then we talk about Facebook royally failing a test to not put out hateful and violent ads out in Ethiopia. 

Locally, New Seasons has hired Trump-affiliated right-wing union-busting lawfirm Ogletree Deakins to fight workers at two stores who are trying to unionize. Not so fresh and organic!

We then touch on some of the findings in last night's House Select Committee public hearing on the January 6th insurrection. 

In our second half, we ask our listeners, what's a self-help book that actually helped you? And you answered! Here are the titles that listeners brought up:
