After an update on the day's news, we welcome the host/managing editor of The Zero Hour, Richard "RJ" Eskow, to the show to talk about the future of the Democratic Party in the wake of yesterday's big wins and all the infighting. Richard is also a senior fellow at the Campaign for America's Future and writes at ourfuture.org. We discussed his article, "Donna Brazile, the DNC, and Democratizing the Democrats."
Today, we discuss the Justice Department's announcement on cracking down on White House leaks in the wake of the transcripts of two phone calls yesterday. Writer Gaius Publius joins in to talk about the effects of climate change and how it relates to many of the world's current crises. Plus we take a look at the hacking of elections, not only by the Russians.
Today, we bring you a double header of What's News? There was just too much for one segment, so today, you get a little extra.
We finally made it to the end of this endless election season. At 11pm ET tonight, I expect to hear that Hillary Clinton has been elected president in the biggest blowout in history. I also hope she realizes that it will be due to everyone turning out to defeat Trump. I believe it'll be an anti-Trump mandate, as opposed to a pro-Clinton one. But we'll see how it plays out. There's still that little voice saying that people are fucking nuts, and that anything is still possible. As my stomach churns! It's Tuesday, so GottaLaff hung out with me, and [...]
It's finally here! Election day has arrived, so it's only a few more hours that we'll be in limbo with the threat of a sociopathic, narcissistic wannabe dictator taking the white house. Here's today's look back and the never-ending campaign that will finally end tonight!
I didn't get any "Gary Johnson"s, so we've got that going for us. When I asked the question today, "Who Are You Voting For, and Why?" I knew I'd get a variety of answers. But I do admit to being surprised by the guy who claimed to be a Bernie supporter voting for Trump as a way of supporting Bernie. I only called one person an idiot today, and that was him. I have been thinking about the answers and the passion from those who are voting for Jill Stein. Some people will - and we know that. I am just [...]
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.
Apologies for the titillating title, so to speak, but if you watched the Al Smith Dinner last night, you couldn't miss them. Now that that's out of the way... Jason Leopold was my guest today on the show. He's been making me as proud as ever to be his friend as I read and watch his work as an investigative correspondent for Vice News and the new nightly HBO show Vice News Tonight. Today, we discussed his being labeled a "FOIA Terrorist" by the government because of his expert use of the Freedom of Information Act to access information otherwise [...]
