Between the Lines

A four-time winner of the Connecticut Associated Press Broadcast Award for Best Feature in the non-commercial category, this syndicated, half-hour program provides a platform for individuals and spokespersons from progressive organizations generally ignored or marginalized by the mainstream media.

Between the Lines covers a wide range of political, economic and social topics. Each program begins with a five-minute summary of some of the week’s under-reported news stories gathered from the alternative press. This summary is followed by three five-minute interview segments focusing on significant international, national and regional issues.

"Today, Democrats are theoretically in charge of the U.S. Senate and the White House, and why they think they have to settle every single dispute with the lowest common denominator of something marginally less insane than the most insane position of a minority position within a minority party, is really beyond me. The people who sunk our economic ship should not be complaining that we’re giving life preservers to the drowning."

"The right-wing has been organizing governors and state assemblies to oppose expansion of Medicaid at the state level. Twenty-five states, as of now, have rejected the Medicaid expansion. ... The impact of this is that, generally speaking, any rejection of Medicaid is going to disproportionately hit people of color, because people of color are lagging behind in insurance coverage to begin with."

"There are two conventions. That's the Geneva Protocol of 1925 prohibiting the use of chemical weapons in international armed conflict. ... There is also the Chemical Weapons Convention. Syria is not a party, the U.S. is. But currently, the U.S. is in material breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention. There was an absolute final deadline in the Chemical Weapons Convention that we had to destroy all of our chemical weapons by April of 2012, and we have refused to do it."

"All along, the U.S. had not been very comfortable with (former President Mohamed) Morsi being in office because he comes from the Muslim Brotherhood; they tend to have a very assertive foreign policy, especially when it comes to Israel's decades-long conflict. It's much easier for the U.S. to deal with a compliant military than with an assertive group seeking greater independence for Egypt and the rest of the Arab countries from U.S. foreign policy."

– Emad Mekay, Egyptian investigative journalist, on his Al Jazeera report that the U.S. government believes this third military coup in Egypt has restored democracy.

Chained CPI, Indefinite Detention, & Obama’s Social Security Cuts April 12, 2013 | 9:00 am

"The chained-CPI cuts the (Social Security and Medicare) cost-of-living adjustment each year by three-tenths of a percentage point. ... This is $28,000 if you live to the age 95, out of the pockets of beneficiaries. ... They're trying to say is that people with disabilities, older people, veterans ... are getting too large a cost-of-living adjustment."

– Eric Kingson, co-director of the Strengthen Social Security campaign on why he believes President Obama and other lawmakers who have made campaign promises not to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits are being disingenuous about making a "little tweak" with the chained CPI. This year, the cost of living adjustment was 1.7 percent; none in previous years.
