Leaked: The Internet must go!

Hey! Are you on the internet right now? Of course you are! Then you should definitely check out this amazing video about what the internet companies are planning. This move could hurt both consumers and content creators--but of course would be a huge windfall for internet providers.

How weathly are Americans?

The disparity in wealth between the richest one percent of Americans and the bottom 80 percent has grown exponentially over the last thirty years — but the video, posted by user politizane and relying on data from a popular Mother Jones post, focuses on the difference between the ideal disparity that Americans would like to see and the reality.

Tax the Rich

So long! It's been fun.

Dear listeners,

In July 2011 I started a new job teaching Italian at Kansas State University. In some ways this was a return to my roots, as I taught English as a Foreign Language for 17 years in Italy. Now I am teaching English speakers Italian. I've come full circle.

This coming full circle also means the end of an attempt on my part to start a new career in my 50s. Sadly, as much as I tried to bring community radio to Manhattan, I was not successful. So I have decided to dedicate my energy and time to my first love, being an educator.

The archive of my shows will remain active - there's a lot of great content in the shows. So I hope you continue to listen and enjoy them.

Once again thank you for your support and encouragement over the five years the show was on the air. I know many feel that my program needs to be on the air and I agree with you that a diversity of voices is sorely lacking in the local media. But alas, it is not I who will bring that diversity. It will have to be someone else.

Aug 13 Pt 2 - Extended Summer Programming

For our extended summer programming, we rebroadcast a Truthdig podcast featuring Thom Hartmann, along with Truthdig contributors James Harris and Josh Scheer, as they discuss his new book, Threshold: The Crisis of Western Culture, the need for serious financial regulation, and his trip to Darfur.

We close out this week's show by hearing Laura Flanders moderate a media panel including Hendrik Hertzberg, Senior Editor and Staff Writer for The New Yorker, along with Editor and Publisher of The Nation Katrina Vanden Heuvel, and Nancy Giles, contributor for CBS News Sunday Morning as they discuss the issues in the news including health care, the mainstream media reaction to the Henry Louis Gates' arrest and its aftermath with Glenn Beck commenting on Obama's "racism" and desire for "reparations," Rush Limbaugh accusing him of trying to ruin a white police officer, and Michele Malkin calling him a "racial opportunist," and the media's blackout on information about foreign issues.
