I returned to the air today after being out most of last week with a nasty case of bronchitis and a sinus infection too. And boy did I pick a hell of a week to get sick! Today, I did my best to recap the events of the past week, and focus in on two big stories. My old colleague Jim DeFede, now an investigative reporter at Miami's CBS4 and host of Facing South Florida with Jim DeFede tore down the curtain around Congressman and would-be senator Patrick Murphy with a mind-blowing story about the fake resume Murphy has been touting, [...]
As much as we'd like to Flashback to before Tuesday, we spent the first hour dissecting what happened. CBS4/Miami's Jim DeFede helped unpack what happened in Florida, and the Campaign for America's Future's Dave Johnson told us about what went wrong nationally and gave a preview of next week's action against the TPP. In hour two, we went back to 2000 for my interviews with musicians Colin Hay of Men at Work and Jill Sobule.
These are photos taken of some of the images projected on The Wall Saturday night when I saw Roger Waters perform the Pink Floyd concert.

Randi's headed to NY to guest on Joy Behar's TV show tonight, so I'll be filling in for her today. And that's a good thing, as there's so much to talk about today...

I'll give you a list of some examples, and then ask for your best instances of the right wing hypocrisy... My guests will include Howie Klein, who blogs at DownWithTyranny.com and [...]
I'm a bad host... a very bad host. I was just too tired last night to write this blog entry, letting you know who was on the show and giving you links to find out more about who they are and what we talked about. So now, I get to pull double duty again! So, we'll make this quick (as I still have to post tonight's show and blog!) We started the show last night as we do most Wednesdays, with Christy Harvey of the Center for American Progress, and a discussion of some of the stories she shares with [...]
