Trifecta Resista

Many people consider Kansas City as flyover country.  But our area is actually anchored to national and international issues.

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning is imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth, Drones are being operated out of Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, Missouri, and a new WMD factory is being built in Kansas City.

Bill Clause speaks to Peaceworks’ Tamara Severns about the efforts to resist these by peace activists and the 3 day action that will be happening May 30 – June1

Adam Gaffney on Obamacare Costs; Astra Taylor on ‘The People’s Platform’

This week on CounterSpin: It’s an understatement to say that media characterizations of the Affordable Care Act vary wildly. But so much analysis is devoted to political football, when health insurance is an issue calling out for news that people can use. We’ll talk about coverage with Adam Gaffney, a physician and writer at the Progressive Physician.

peoplesplatformAlso on the show: It wasn’t that long ago that many people believed the Internet would be a kind of utopia; today many still hold that if only everyone had a way to get online, it could be a truly democratic town square. A new book interrogates that idea, and shows how in many ways the Net is anything but revolutionary. It’s called The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age. We’ll speak with author Astra Taylor.
