It's been estimated that the winner of the 2012 presidential election will need to spend $1 billion to do it. In 2008, the financial sector, realizing it had been the catalyst for the economic meltdown, realized Barack Obama was a winner and decided to back him. This time around, he's making sure they back him again.

The Brainwashing of the US Population! Guest: Frances Fox Piven

Frances Fox Piven. Have you heard of her? The left wing mastermind behind the 2008 financial crisis! According to Glenn Beck, that is! He put this distinguished professor, activist and long time contributor to the Nation Magazine in the cross hairs of his television show no more than 30 times. She was inundated by thousands of messages of hate and scores of death threats via email and standard methods. Her home and work addresses were published by those taking up Beck's wild accusations.

Tune in to hear this courageous and long time scholar and activist. We will talk about the propagandizing of the U.S. public and the message they are trying to silence.

Are we alone in the universe? So far, definitive proof has eluded us. However, in recent years scientists have been engaged in a vigorous and widespread search for extraterrestrial life, which has produced encouraging results.

To learn the latest about the quest for life beyond Earth, Dave DeAngelis interviews Washington Post science writer Marc Kaufman. Marc is the author of “First Contact,” where he describes compelling new evidence such that suggests life beyond Earth is not only possible, but highly probable.

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."
