He’ll discuss the conduct of the Senate impeachment trial, with a focus on the legitimacy of the proceedings re: GOP obstruction of witnesses and documents.
  • Jeff Cohen, founding director of the Park Center for Independent Media, founder of FAIR, the national media watch group, and co-founder of the online activism group, RootsAction.org, discusses his recent article, “7 Pointed Questions for Corporate Media About Their Anti-Progressive Biases,” examining corporate media’s biased coverage of the Democratic Party primary campaign, re: progressive policy proposals — with a focus on Bernie Sanders’ front runner status and the panic among establishment Dems and media pundits. Jeff will also talk about his new film documentary,” The Corporate Coup d’État.”
  • Laura Carlsen, Director of the Americas Program at the Center For International Policy talks about the thousands of migrants leaving Honduras, their recent confrontation with Mexican security officials – and the economic and political crisis in Honduras that she’s covered in her recent article, “As Honduras Collapses, Its People are Forced to Flee.”
  • Ken Ward, an activist with the group Climate Direct Action discuss CDA’s important work, his upcoming Washington state trial for a 2016 civil disobedience action — and recent reports which revealed that the Dept. of Homeland Security listed some of your members as “extremists alongside white nationalists and mass killers.” He’ll examine the dangerous consequences of this Trump administration’s move to criminalize non-violent climate activism.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

We talk with Washington Post columnist Helaine Olen about her recent post, “Sanders is right: Biden is Vulnerable to Trump on Social Security.” The conversation covers Biden’s record on the issue, as well as the current plans of Sanders, Warren and Biden to protect and expand Social Security. We also talk about why Social Security is a feminist and racial justice issue. But first, critics have tried to tar Bernie Sanders with the brush of sexism, implied if not explicit. But gender studies scholar Sara Mattheissen says he could be the first feminist president. We talk with her about her article in the Nation, ”Bernie Could be America’s First Feminist President.”
