  2. Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, talks about Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Senator Tim Kaine’s experience working with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras and Hillary Clinton’s role in shaping the current destructive U.S. policy toward Honduras — as well as the changing political crisis in Brazil as the Olympic Games kick off in Rio de Janeiro.

  4. Lenny Siegel, a Bernie Sanders delegate from Mountain View, California, who attended the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Siegel, a leader of the anti-war student movement at Stanford University from 1966 to 1975 and founder of Mountain View Voices for Peace talks about his views on the DNC, Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and the issues of war and peace not much addressed in Philadelphia.

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”.
