Journalism's Role in Democracy

program date: 
Tue, 08/11/2009

In this edition of We The People, we explore the art of investigative journalism and its role in democracy.  Is investigative journalism on the decline?  What are the economic and political interests behind this decline?  Will the internet be able to replace the void left as larger news corporations reduce the resources spent in investigative reporting?  To explore these questions, Joanne interviewed Ken Silverstein of Harper’s Magazine; and joining us live in the studio was Beth Slovic, reporter for the Willamette Week and independent journalist Chris Lydgate.

As a country, we tend to forget the dangers of current methods of processing coal. We focus on the myth of “clean coal” and don’t pay much attention to stories such as the December 22nd Coal Ash Disaster in Kingston, Tenn.,
The 65 foot tall pile of 1.6 billion gallons of coal ash created by years of burning coal for electricity broke the dam that separated it from the nearby Emory  river, spilling into the river and  burying 400 acres of land.
Tonight on Circle a Radio we talk with Matt Landon of United Mountain Defense about the aftermath of the disaster, and we talk to Patricia Feeney and Joe Stanley of the Sludge Saftey Project in West Virginia about their community and legislative fight against storage of the toxic byproducts .

Can talking about race make a difference?

program date: 
Wed, 08/05/2009

Last month, President Obama sat down over beers with a Cambridge cop and a Harvard professor to talk about an ugly incident that brought home how deep racial tensions still run in our nation. The president saw the arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. by Sgt. James Crowly as a "teachable moment" that could help Americans in their struggle to understand race and its impacts. But can talking about race make a difference?
