Fighting a Tar Sands Company's Claims to Private Land

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas landowner and farmer who isn’t letting the foreign tar sands company claim eminent domain rights to her land without putting up a fight. Two weeks ago Ms. Crawford launched a Change.org petition to protect her land from tar sands money and tar sands risks.

With support from activists on both sides of the aisle, Ms. Crawford is hopeful that the Texas farmer can claim victory over the multi-billion dollar tar sands company which is trying to build a pipeline to transport a highly toxic hydrocarbon (called “tar sands”) from Alberta, Canada to Texas to refine and then export to foreign countries.

Susan Herman on “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy"

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Susan Herman about her new book “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy” which takes a hard look at the human and social costs of the War on Terror. A decade after 9/11, it is far from clear that the government's hastily adopted antiterrorist tactics--such as the Patriot Act--are keeping us safe, but it is increasingly clear that these emergency measures in fact have the potential to ravage our lives--and have already done just that to countless Americans.

The Media's Role in the Fate of the World

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Maria Armoudian about her new book "Kill the Messenger: The Media's Role in the Fate of the World," an in-depth examination of the media's power to help or harm.

What role do the media have in creating the conditions for atrocities in areas of conflict? Conversely, can the media be used to preserve democracy and safeguard the human rights of all citizens in a diverse society? How will the media affect the fate of the planet itself.

How does the media interact with psychological and cultural forces to impact perceptions, fears, peer-pressure, "groupthink," and the creation of heroes and villains?

Literacy programs at Multnomah County Library

It used to be that literacy was a question of: can you read or can't you? Today literacy experts look at the levels of reading ability -- reading a medicine bottle, a newspaper, or a ballot all require different levels of literacy. Our guest Melissa Madensky from the Multnomah County Library talks about their new literacy programs at the North Portland Library. Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.

 Hosted by Lisa Loving

What if accused Arizona shooter Jared Loughner had been a Muslim? Host Lisa Loving speaks with Sara Robinson, senior fellow at the Campaign for America's Future? The shooting in Arizona is the result of twenty years of conservative media propagating violent rhetoric against liberal Americans. This is what domestic terrorism looks like, and we would be much faster to call it that if the shooter had been a Muslim.
