With seven days left in silly season, GottaLaff joins in...
What a Friday! I was supposed to talk with Aldo Seoane on the show today. Unfortunately, when I called, we got voicemail. Aldo has been at the Standing Rock Sioux protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline where, on Thursday, all hell broke loose as the National Guard and militarized police showed up to violently remove the protesters from the land. Aldo sent this message on Friday night: Super sorry had law enforcement come in and had to focus on deescalation Obviously, some things are more important. We'll try to touch base with Aldo on Tuesday's show to get an update on what's [...]
Nicole talk with UK Progressive's Dennis Campbell and his partner on the Three Muckrakers Podcast, Phil Parry, about the US presidential elections, the correlations with Brexit and other global crises. And journalist Sarah Jaffe returns to the show to discuss her first book, Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt. She'll be appearing at the Miami International Book Fair on Sunday Nov 20.
Nicole Sandler lets the candidates do the talking as one did well and the other continues to scorch the earth at the annual Al Smith Dinner in this edition of "What's News?"
What a night last night, huh? Keith Olbermann and I had the same thought at the same moment... that Donald Trump's campaign ended the moment he said he wouldn't commit to accepting the official election returns. Last night: subverts our elections. Today: jokes about it. My message to @realDonaldTrump: Burn In Hell. pic.twitter.com/q2gvPzYOLf — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 20, 2016 Just don't get cocky or complacent about it as we still have to go out and vote. But, as Howie Klein said on the show today, he saw that moment in the debate last night as the opening for the [...]
In this edition of What's News?, Nicole Sandler recaps last night's third and final debate in the 2016 presidential race. Watch out for part 2!
In case you missed it, James O'Keefe - the slimy twerp whose "Project Veritas" uses hidden cameras and creative editing to smear people and ruin lives has struck again. After destroying ACORN, trying to derail Planned Parenthood, and a few other escapades, this time O'Keefe went after Democracy Partners. The latest ‘gotcha’ videos from conservative provocateur James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action have some shocking claims that, if they are true, would indicate Democrats are playing dirty to get Hillary Clinton elected. In one video, a contractor seems to brag about sending homeless and mentally ill people to harass Republicans. [...]
Today's edition of What's News? covers Melania's moment, Donald's distractions and Nicole's return to the air. It's the most important six minutes of news on the net...
A reverse witch-hunt, as it were, has finally gotten enough participants and personal courage to commence. With any well deserved luck, women groped or worse by Donald J. Trump will have their turn at sharing their #NotOkay "shame" in the political public square. I think we may be ready for a woman's revolution of the sort since bra bonfires were regularly planning cabals. Vice President Biden can take the wheel for a moment here, his appearance on Seth Meyers last night was somehow soothing in much needed ways. Groping is clearly and appropriately a BFD to Joe. .

916 million USD prime dollars. Of IRS deductions that could last until his Trump Squad of lawyers cannot run out the election clock any further. The New York Times' Susanne Craig was gifted with much of this info by snail mail … three whole juicy pages on Trump's 1995 taxes… Bouyah! An old school reporter's request (and some to-be-determined hands of 'fate') brought her the Get of the season. She aptly titled the revelatory article published on Sunday, "The Time I Found Donald Trump’s Tax Records in My Mailbox" A manila envelope led to old-style investigative journalism involving a [...]
