10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon
We talk with Wendell Potter about the book he co-wrote with Nick Penniman, Nation on the Take: How Big Money Corrupts Our Democracy and What We Can Do About It. Then, Bernie Sanders supporters have been charging the DNC with bias against their candidate for months, only to be called conspiracy theorists by corporate media pundits. Now, Wikileaks has released 20,000 emails showing Bernie’s supporters were right, but those same pundits are dismissing it as no big deal. We talk with Adam Johnson about the corporate spin on the Wikileaks DNC revelations. His article for the media watch group FAIR is “With DNC Leaks, Former Conspiracy Theory Is Now True — and No Big Deal”.
