Featured Guests:

  1. Marcy Wheeler, an investigative journalist with ExposeFacts, discusses the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling and the larger issue of the government’s prosecution of whistle blowers under the Espionage Act – as well as the consequences for journalism and the public’s right to know. She’ll also address the issue of press freedom in the aftermath of the murder of 12 people, including 8 journalists, at the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo at the hands of terrorists.
  2. Alisa Simmons, Deputy Director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch talks about the ongoing campaign to defeat the Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and fast track authority, with the changed political climate in Washington after the GOP took control of the U.S. Senate earlier this month.
  3. Paul Buchheit, an active member of U.S. Uncut-Chicago and editor of the book, “American Wars: Illusions and Realities,” talks about his recent article, “Greed Kings of 2014: How They Stole from Us,” with a focus on corporate tax avoidance, federal tax loopholes, subsidies and the ways in which corporate and conservative think tanks try to convince the public that inequality doesn’t exist or is a benefit to the nation.
  4. Victor Pickard, Assistant Professor of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School of Communication, discusses his new book, “America’s Battle for Media Democracy: The Triumph of Corporate Libertarianism and the Future of Media Reform.”

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

Bob Herbert talks about his penetrating new book, Losing Our Way: An Intimate Portrait of a Troubled America. And former New York Governor Mario Cuomo was laid to rest in New York City on January 6 to full throated praise for his liberal legacy. But how liberal was that legacy, really? In an obituary, The New York Times cited Cuomo’s role in the closing of Long Island’s Shoreham nuclear power plant in 1989 as one of his major accomplishments. But investigative reporter Greg Palast saw another side of that story. He advised Cuomo and the New York State Legislature as the decision was made to close the plant and to take over the private Long Island Lighting Company or LILCO. The experience showed him that there were two Marios: the golden throated defender of the working man and the back room politician. Palast discusses his online post, A Tale Of Two Marios.
