11-2-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Lies and the Lying Republicans Who Lie About Who’s Lying

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) One more week to go in this dystopian election season. We're dealing with a Republican party with no plans to fix any of the problems plaguing our world today. All they do is stoke fear, blame Democrats and lie. About everything. So I jumped when I saw that a new book was out called How to Win the War on Truth: An Illustrated Guide to How Mistruths Are Sold, Why They Stick, and How to Reclaim Reality. Its author Samuel C. Spitale joins [...]

5-24-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Disinformation, War, George Floyd and 14 More Kids Shot Dead at School

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) When Laffy is here on certain Tuesdays, the mood is much lighter than it will be today in her absence. I have two guests lined up who promise to be fascinating. But I don't think we'll be doing much laughing today. First up: Lev Golinkin, an author/journalist who was a child refugee from Ukraine, writes in The Nation about the ill-fated Disinformation Board the Biden administration first announced, then abandoned, seemingly being derailed by right wing attacks and propaganda. The thing is, I [...]

3-15-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Truth and Lies and Conspiracy Theories Too

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Life in the 21st century would be complicated enough without people on the sidelines claiming facts are fiction and the sky is green. Disinformation campaigns have long plagued very legitimate causes, but it seems like they've been on a steady dose of steroids for the past 22 years or so. From 9-11 to Covid and so much in between, these conspiracy theories have caused confusion, despair and unleashed a sickening movement. Today, I'll speak with Elizabeth Williamson, author of the new book, Sandy [...]

3-1-22 Nicole Sandler Show – War and Peace and Journalism with Brian Karem

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's now Day 6 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the Russian propaganda is being spread thickly. I think it's the same people who want to do their own vaccine research, as if anything they find out will be more credible than the world's scientific community. In this case, Vladimir Putin has invaded and is waging war on an innocent neighboring nation, simply because Vlad wants his Soviet Union back. But these idiots are echoing his propaganda, claiming that the [...]

2-16-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Supply Chain Explained with (by) David Dayen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The American Prospect magazine has a special edition out right now, dealing with our Supply Chain crisis. Do you understand the Supply Chain? I don't... but I do grok a bit more since I've read some of the special issue, and will know more this afternoon, after TAP Executive Editor David Dayen guests on my show to try to explain the problem/s. So rather than trying to state here what David Dayen will explain to us, I'll direct you to prospect.org, and more [...]

10-6-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Yes, Right Wing Propaganda Media is Destroying Minds with Jen Senko

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   That's not hyperbole, it's a fact and something must be done about it. Our guest today is Jen Senko, writer/director of the film, The Brainwashing of My Dad that was released in 2016. Yesterday, the book, The Brainwashing of My Dad: How the Rise of Right-Wing Media Changed a Father and Divided Our Nation-- And How We Can Fight Back was officially released, and the timing is perfect because things are getting worse. I hope you'll listen to this interview, read the [...]

6-3-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's been a few weeks since we were able to hang with Howie Klein on a Thursday, but we're both here today. The orange one is even more demented than ever, as he's been telling people he'll be reinstated as POTUS in August, and making pronouncements from exile. The crazy is thicker than ever right now. So I'll ask Howie the question that we've been pondering.. can our democracy survive? This is the post about sex workers including Dee Dee Ramone, Marco [...]

5-19-16 Nicole Sandler Show – The Democratic Divide

The more the Democratic Party pushes back against the Sanders campaign, the more determined his supporters are to fight on until the end. Howie Klein returns to the show in hour two today to talk about the Democratic leadership waging war on Progressives. In the first hour, Nicole opens the phone lines to get your take on what happened in Vegas and the Democratic party divide.

What’s the Matter Here?

The stories about domestic abuse in the NFL were bad enough. The video of Ray Rice dragging his unconscious then-fiance from an elevator provided the visual that enraged us. The second video of him landing the blow that knocked her into the raid and knocked her out somehow changed everything in the discussion of the culture of violence surrounding that already violent sport. As abhorrent as someone as big, strong and powerful as a professional football player hitting a woman who is most certainly stronger and weaker than he, the news that one of these brutes brutalized his child and defended [...]

Education Propaganda

    Welcome to Education Nation Propaganda Week, complete with its own Hollywood blockbuster! Won't Back Down is the latest offering from the powers that want to kill public education and replace it with a privatized, for-profit system that will not help our kids. NBC's stations are in the midst of their manufactured-news "Education Nation" week which pushes the privatization idea and presents it as if it the idea of moving education into the private sector was the right thing to do (it isn't).  Last night,  I actually saw Rev. Al Sharpton - who should know bettter - interviewing some [...]
