What you don't know can't hurt the Oregonian; We'll look at the paper's new online partnership

program date: 
Tue, 05/31/2011

Like newspapers everywhere, the Oregonian is struggling to find a place in the new world of digital media. Its new online Oregon News Network pairs it with a set of independent partners to generate locally-based reporting -- including the Cascade Policy Institute, a libertarian think tank. The CPI has championed, among other things, privatizing public education and Social Security, as well as abolishing the minimum wage in favor of a new (and lower) "training wage."

Abe and Joe discuss the relative merits of the Oregonian's new online model, and whether it's a good idea for it to use radical "news" outlets like CPI.

Arun Gupta - Economic Crisis & the Tea Party

Arun Gupta - Economic Crisis & the Tea Party (lecture)

You’ve played by the rules. Went to work every day. Paid your bills and taxes. When your country summoned you to fight in its wars you were proud to serve. You’ve worked hard all your life and now what do you get? Bupkis as they say in Yiddish. Goat droppings. Your job was outsourced overseas. Your house has been foreclosed. You’re in debt. Meanwhile, the big banks are sitting pretty on tons of cash. The stock market and corporate profits are up. GE made billions in 2010 and didn’t pay a dime in taxes. With this backdrop in walks the Tea Party. They got the answers. You know why you are getting shafted? It’s the immigrants, gays, uppity women, minorities, liberals, unions, and public service workers.

Social Security: Beyond the Doom and Gloom

Host Celeste Carey interviews Max Richtman, Executive VP/Acting CEO of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.

Richtman says, “It’s important that Americans understand the [just-released] 2011 Trustees Report which confirms that Social Security and Medicare continue to fulfill their mission, providing retirement and health security to millions still suffering during the worst economic crisis of a generation. Beyond the doom-and-gloom news headlines and calls to cut these programs in order to ‘save’ them, the fiscal facts in this annual report show that Social Security has a $2.6 trillion surplus which continues to grow."
