Although there’s no such thing as a slow news day any more, we know that real news is difficult to find. But if you know where to look, especially online, you will find lots of news about the Republican party’s war on labor.

Joshua Holland, Senior Writer/Editor at Alternet has been doing a great job, and he’ll join us today with the latest on the situation in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and the other states run by GOP despots who are trying to kill unions.

With our intervention in Libya, many are asking why we’re not helping the other oppressed people of the world.  The Ivory Coast has been mentioned a lot in recent days, but many of us don’t know much about that western African nation. John Amato – founder/publisher of Crooks and Liars has been blogging about what’s happening there.  He was also on the White House-bloggers conference call yesterday, and asked about the lack of aid to the people of Ivory Coast.  He’ll join us today to tell us all about it.

And Gotta Laff will join in from The Political Carnival to talk about some of the stories we might otherwise have missed, including
