The Trump administration is threatening democracy with its handling of the 2020 Census. Ari Berman of Mother Jones Hidden Figures: How Donald Trump is Rigging the Censuswrote a piece about it, "" and joins in to tell us what they're doing and whether there's a remedy.

11-26-15 The Day After with Ari Berman, Wesley Lowery & Sen Bob Graham

I was fortunate enough to be able to interview a number of authors at this year's Miami Book Fair, so I thought I'd take advantage of Thanksgiving and the day after to share some of them with you. Today, the guy who probably could have predicted the outcome of our presidential election better than most others, as Ari Berman has been telling us about the whittling away and destruction of the Voting Rights Act for years with his book, Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America. Wesley Lowery was Tweeting from a McDonald's in Ferguson, MO, [...]

Voter Oppression From Sea to Storming Sea

Monte Wolverton, Cagle Cartoons.   Giants like The Nation and The Atlantic (who just bestowed their first presidential endorsement since Lincoln), find themselves flooded with anecdotal cases of Voter Oppression. Or, as I prefer to call it, identifying fraud committed ON the American voter in the name of justice. We all know that white, male, American-since-conception and of possibly xenophobic natures have gleefully depressed and repressed the minority and female vote in this country. We don't even have a Boadicea, a Queen Elizabeth I, a Catherine the Great or even a Maggie Thatcher or Angela Merkel to give [...]

8-1-16 Nicole Sandler Show – A Homecoming

  I moved back to my home studio today. We still have some tweaking to do, but so far, so good. Rick Neuhoff and his wife Diana Hatsis were the Bernie Sanders delegates from my congressional district. Rick joined me for a final recap of the convention and to talk about how to move forward in the post-Bernie race. In the second hour, Ari Berman of The Nation joined me to talk about the court striking down NC's voter ID laws, Rev William Barber at the DNC, and more.

Beware the Voter Scorned- Arizona Edition: ‘BradCast’ 3/24/2016

On today's BradCast, guest host Nicole Sandler of Radio Or Not chats with Ari Berman, author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America, who explains that many of the problems voters experienced Tuesday in Arizona are traced directly back to the Supreme Court’s gutting of the Voting Rights Act. He wrote about that at The Nation. Of course, he didn't absolve Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell for her decision to reduce the number of polling places from 211 to 60. That action and the chaos that ensued prompted attorney Adrian Fontes to challenge her for [...]

8-17-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Chuck Todd Accidentally Reported News

All eyes were on Iowa this weekend as the 2016 hopefuls ate the obligatory corn dogs at the Iowa State Fair and made news. We'll talk about all of it today with Joel Silberman. Ari Berman returns with a news book, "Give Us The Ballot" about the continuing fight for the Voting Rights Act, 50 years after it became law.

3-4-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Two Steps Back

There's no shortage of news for Nicole Sandler to discuss today, from Netanyahu's speech yesterday, Democrats save the day by voting to fund DHS, Petraeus really did betray us, Hillary emails, Ferguson racism, SCOTUS hears a big challenge to the ACA, and it's been 50 years since Bloody Sunday. Susie Madrak and Ari Berman guest

All the News The Corporate Media Doesn’t Deem You Fit to Know

As today's show ended, we were an hour away from the verdict in the Bradley Manning court martial.  I have no numbers to back this up, but I'd guess that if you took a poll of the American people, the vast majority would have no clue that the trial was even happening, let alone who Manning is or what he's accused of doing. I do believe people are responsible for their lack of knowledge; but in this case, the blame rests just as squarely on the shoulders of the corporate media who has a vested interest in controlling the messages [...]

A Tale of Two TV Talkers (and more news you can use)

I offer for your comparison the two TV talkers pictured above.  On the left, we have Jon Stewart, the unlikely champion of disseminating news and information to the masses in the most accessible way possible!  On the right, a blowhard propagandist on the cable network bought and paid for by the Republican Party who wouldn't know a fact if it bit him on the ass. Last night, we heard the news that Jon Stewart would be taking a 12-week hiatus from The Daily Show this summer to direct his first film... and it's not a comedy! To understand the story [...]

Truth is Stranger Than Fiction

{play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120508_Nicole_Sandler_Show_.mp3{/play} Podcast: Play in new window. I say it all the time.  Some of the shit that's going on is so utterly unbelievable that it couldn't be fiction, because we'd never buy it.  But Mitt Romney is surrounding himself with the same war-loving Neo Cons who enabled the madness of President George Bush II. As I welcomed The Nation's Ari Berman to the show this morning, I warned that his new cover story, "Mitt Romney's Neocon War Cabinet" is more frightening than any horror movie you'll see at the local multiplex.  In fact,  you might not want to read this [...]
