Featured Guests:

  1. Danny Schechter, editor at MediaChannel.org, is an award-winning independent filmmaker and author whose recent film and book are titled, “Plunder: The Crime of Our Time.” Danny discusses his recent article, “‘Happy News Year’: Looking Beyond Top Stories to Examine Our News System.” He’ll also be talking about his just published book, “Madiba A to Z: The Many Faces of Nelson Mandela,” a companion book to the widely acclaimed new motion picture, “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.”
  2. Ben Beachy, Research Director with Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, reviews his group’s new report titled, “NAFTA at 20: One Million Lost U.S. Jobs, Higher Income Inequality.” He’ll also discuss Public Citizen’s – and a growing national coalition of progressive organization’s – ongoing work mobilizing opposition to the Obama administration-backed Trans Pacific Partnership free trade treaty.
  3. Peter Wilcox is captain of the Greenpeace ship, “Arctic Sunrise,” who was held prisoner by Russia for more than 2 months along with 27 of his crew members and two freelance journalists after they were detained following a direct action protest on a Russian oil rig in the Arctic Sea on September 18th. Captain Wilcox will discuss the circumstances surrounding the Russian Parliament’s granting of amnesty to the “Arctic 30,” his and others’ experience while being held prisoner – and Greenpeace’s continuing work focusing the world’s attention on the danger of drilling for oil in the fragile Arctic ecosystem and climate change.
