Moderate Rebels podcast by Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton

Moderate Rebels is a political podcast hosted by journalists Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton. Each week, we report on Americas bellicose foreign policy and the deceptions deployed to sell it to the public. We also connect the dots to show how the state of perpetual war fuels dangerous right-wing politics back home.

Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton created this podcast to help provide a platform to the dissident journalists and activists challenging US empire. We hope to show listeners whats behind the endless war propaganda that is sold to us each day in the corporate media.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
