    Politics Done Right on KPFT - Bloggers must replace discredited traditional news

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show  April 14th, 2014
    Bloggers must replace discredited traditional news media
    Have you ever wondered why when you watch CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC they are invariably featuring the same news? Have you ever wondered why most of the issues that have material effect on your life are never really covered? Have you noticed that the news of today is shallow and un-researched?
    This is all by design. An uninformed, a misinformed, an ill-informed populace is one that can be controlled. The arbiters of our news domain are mostly discredited.
    Luckily good reputable bloggers are starting to assert themselves. They are providing quality prescient news to their followers. They are making a difference. Going forward they must take the mantle if the reversal of a poorly informed citizenry is to occur.
    The show will feature four bloggers that are making a difference in local, state, and national news. Katherine Haenschen of BurntOrangeReport.com, Stace Medellin of DosCentavos.net, Tiffany Willis of LiberalAmerica.org, and Charles Kuffner of OffTheKuff.com will discuss these issues. We will discuss why bloggers are important, why the traditional news media is discredited, and the crowd sourcing of news by citizens.

    THE GOP ARE RUSSIAN GRAVE ROBBERS

    in Politics Progressive

    The GOP are no better than Russian grave robbers.  In Wisconsin, Michigan & North Carolina they attempted or are attempting to severely strip the power of the duly-elected democratic governor in those respective states.
    The GOP-dominant legislatures in these states have thumbed their collective noses at the popular vote in those states - wherein Democrats were/have been installed asgovernor - only to be thwarted by GOP midnight legislation designed to stifle or thwart the ability of the newly-elected Democratic governor to exercise their legally-obtained power via the ballot box.
    Whether it's the governor's right to appoint the State Board Of Election members, or stripping away the power of the Democratic state attorney general 's ability to handle cases wherein state law is under attack from third-party, outside litigants or to allow for adequate early voting leading up to elections, the GOP is rigging the political system to counter their losses of the governor's mansion at the ballot box.
    In Wisconsin, Republicans aim to limit early voting, change the date of the state’s presidential primary to help a conservative member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court win re-election, limit the governor’s ability to make certain appointments and block Gov.-elect Tony Evers from eliminating a state economic development agency.
    Another bill would overhaul the state’s elections boards, the latest in a long series of steps Republicans have taken to alter the voting process in the state, many of which have been turned back by federal courts. Other steps would slash currently required environmental reports and reduce regulation elsewhere.
    In Michigan, under Governor Rick Snyder, the Michigan legislature has taken it upon themselves to insert the legislature into the attorney general's office by crafting legislation that allows for the legislature to intervene in cases

    Hey there!  I keep hearing on the news that Russia hacked our political servers, they swayed our election, and they are our mortal enemy.  But why?  I decided a couple MONTHS ago that I would do a show on this, but I wanted to make sure I knew all I could before speaking, so I delayed it.  I wanted to know if Vladimir Putin is really the spawn of Satan.  Our media certainly paints a picture of him that makes me think so!  Listen Tuesday, February 14, for the answer to these questions and more!
