How do we change the national conversation about war and peace? Also: Update on health care reform legislation

program date: 
Wed, 07/22/2009

Seven months into a new administration and the nation still finds itself embroiled in two Asian wars. Many Americans would have difficulty explaining how the Obama administration's conduct of these wars differs from the last administration's. They're certainly not being helped by policymakers and pundits who are working overtime to marginalize arguments for American withdrawal from the region. With the economy now people's foremost concern, how does the peace movement change the national conversation about war and peace?

What's the future of community media?

program date: 
Wed, 07/15/2009

As recent events in Iran have shown, technology has given ordinary people the power to inform neighbors down the street and strangers halfway around the world about important events regardless of government censorship or corporate media indifference. "Community media" - citizen-operated print, broadcast and digital technologies - is filling the information needs of a growing number of Americans. The Alliance for Community Media's 2009 international conference recently took place in Portland, where hundreds of media activists discussed new concepts in community media and challenge old ones.

Here's part of the script for today's PRESS**WATCH...

(pull up to participate in the Dollar Doom poll!)

The emergency we are faced with is corporate rule.  We are ruled by multinational corporations.

Here are some of the symptoms:

The war industry keeps our legislatures like concubines.  Contributions for just last year amount to nearly $24 million, and 59% of that went to Democrats.  You know, the rational, liberal party that's going to get us out of the wars?  That one.  fifty-nine percent.  and it works.  In past years the lions' share went to the Republicans.  It's not a matter of ideology.  It's whoever is in power.
