Mar 24: 99 Problems but this book ain’t one…

Chris Faraone joined Samantha to talk about his new book “99 Nights with the 99%,” a compilation of Chris’ articles for The Boston Phoenix and other unpublished material he wrote as he traveled the country late last year from Occupation to Occupation.

The discussion ranged from the occupy movement to how down and dirty should liberals should get when arguing with conservatives to the Treyvon Martin shooting and ‘stand your ground’ laws in Florida and proposed bill here in  Massachusetts.

Interesting conversation with an interesting guy…

Apr 9: Reality tv, ambulance chasing news, shock talk… Great.

Guests:

Government shut down. Bogus stories about abortion funding and the budget. Wikileaks. Net neutrality. 14,000 votes in an access database on a personal computer. All important stories.

Yet, what do we get in the media? Sensationalist ambulance stories. Incendiary flaming talk shows. Reality shows. What’s the problem??

The media is supposed to be watching power – the government, the corporations, and yes, the people. How free is the media? How accurate? How thorough? How unbiased? Does it matter?

The founding fathers thought the media was pretty important for our republic. How is it doing?
