Media Listening Update April 28th

Here are the two clips for this week’s group discussion. I don’t think there are transcripts, however you can click the captions setting on the page and you’ll get an on-screen transcript (not 100% accurate).

 The second clip, you need only to watch between 0:00 – 5:35.


1.     What did Edward Snowden want to find out from Vladimir Putin?

2.     Why are two journalists facing charges in Thailand? (and what charges)

3.     What was the response to the Reuters reporters?  Why was it different?

4.     Why did the police remove the squatters in the Amazon?

5.     Do you think the squatters should be allowed to stay? Why or why not?

6.     What is the purpose of the new FBI film?

7.     Describe the 2 groups fighting each other in Thailand

8.     Which group do you think deserves support?

9.     What solution would you propose for the situation?
