It's over. The Midterm Elections have come to a close and Americans have spoken – well, kind of. Tonight we discuss the results and how the new Congress will shape America's future on the home front. Tonight we have two friends and journalists: from the Canadian perspective with our friend columnist Mike Archer of Abbotsford Today in British Columbia; and from the Palm Beach Daily News we welcome journalist Michelle Dargan who also hosts the up and coming SoapBox1.com. These two local reporters have a keen perspective of what's happening not only in their communities but globally.

What do local news media think of the monopolization of “news” by agenda driven pundits? And has the great obsession with all things sensational hampered local news reporters from going after stories that really matter? Tonight I'll ask how buying a local newspaper may help your local economy. We're going to tackle some tough issues and we'll even discuss the lighter side of local news reporting. Perhaps you've thought about being a local journalist. Maybe it's been 10 or 20 years since you've picked up your local newspaper. Tonight we'll make the case as to why you should consider doing it once again! So, grab a drink, tune in and share your thoughts. It's going to be a great show!
