Today, Nicole talks with Lisa Graves of the Center for Media & Democracy (ALEC Exposed & more) about the bipartisan coalition on criminal justice reform and whether ALEC, the Kochs, etc can be trusted. Plus David Silverman, president of American Atheists on this week's convention and the controversy surrounding it.

1-27-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Koch Sucking at MSNBC

Nicole looks at the Big Blizzard of 2015 that went bust in NYC but has blasted New England. (Payback's a bitch!) GottaLaff joins in the fun. On a more serious note, Lisa Graves of the Center for Media & Democracy tells us about the Koch Brothers "Freedom Partners" who will spend close to $1 Billion on the 2016 elections.

10-31-14 Political Tricks & Musical Treats

Nicole celebrates Halloween with a look at one of the scariest right wing trick players in politics, Rick Berman. CMD's Lisa Graves with another expose! And for our Flashback Friday treat, we go back to May 1995 with Joan Osborne, and her first LA radio appearance.

False Equivalencies

  I'm sick and tired of false equivalencies. We're presented with them constantly by a media that wouldn't understand the concept of objective journalism even if Walter Cronkite came back from the dead to bite it on the ass. Sorry, the failed launch of the Affordable Care Act - though truly a sign of ineptitude and inexcusable - is not the same as George W. Bush's horrendous reaction to Hurricane Katrina.  Not even close. Actually, the Affordable Care Act was designed to help people who previously couldn't  get access to health care. The lack of adequate response by Bush Jr [...]

Surrender!

As today's show was in progress, the news came trickling out that Speaker John Boehner would finally relent and allow the Reid-McConnell bill to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling to come to the floor for a vote, even if it means violating the asinine "Hastert Rule". But as the show ended at noon there were still some soap opera cliffhanger worthy questions hanging in the balance: Would Ted Cruz hold up the vote? Would the House vote before the Senate? We now know the answer to the first... No.  After Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell gave their [...]

Geraldo, ALEC and the Cooch

  Oh  Geraldo.  Don't you know that the internet is forever?  That is just nothing I wanted to see... but Geraldo Rivera wanted to show off his 70-year old bod, so tweeted this selfie: He later deleted it, but just as we can't "un-see" it, he can't undo it.  Yuck! While you try to get that image out of your mind, think about Melissa Harris-Perry's segment on Virginia's Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli's obsession with what you do in your bedroom.   I particularly enjoyed her hand motions every time she talks about certain sexual acts that the [...]

Juror B37 and Other Judicial Travesties

During yesterday's show, I read a news alert that said that the juror in the George Zimmerman murder trial known only as B37 had signed a book deal, and noted that there was something truly troubling about that. But a woman who goes by the handle @MoreAndAgain on Twitter didn't stop there.  She was so troubled by the prospect of this example of what's wrong with our judicial system (see video below) that she amassed some information about the agent and the publisher and using twitter, effectively, in just a few hours killed the book deal! About that juror.  Above, [...]

And the Award Goes To….

  The morning after the Academy Awards, I'll hand out my own! We'll start with Jennifer Lawrence who won the Oscar for Best Actress.  Good for her.  Although she was great in the movie, I just like her.  I like her even more after seeing her flip someone off in the press room after winning last night. My awards from last night also go to Shirley Bassey for her "Goldfinger" performance, and the "We Saw Your Boobs" song.  It was funny.  People need to get a sense of humor. The "No More, Please" award goes to the red carpet crap. [...]

What Really Happened in WI and Why You Must Care

Listen to this episode: {play}Wisconsin, recall, Walker, Koch, Lisa Graves, Florida, Rick Scott, purge, Sargent Shriver {/play} Play in new window Live video for mobile from Ustream The annual Netroots Nation gathering came at the perfect time this year.  It followed, by two days, the stinging defeat of the recall of Scott Walker as Wisconsin's governor, and gave us the chance to figure out what went wrong and regroup as we head toward November.   The really odd thing is that the exit polls showed solid support for President Obama's re-election, yet many of the same people who support Obama [...]
