RadioNation with Laura Flanders (Sat. David Lindorff, Bill Christison, Jim McDermott, Sun: Mark Crispin Miller . . .)

Kat here giving the heads up to RadioNation with Laura Flanders (AAR over the airwaves and you can listen online as well, 7-10 pm EST).

So what have you got tonight? How about Congress person Jim McDermott who, if you've forgotten, Mara Liasson (NPR) slandered on Fox "News" and was supposedly 'talked to' about it but she continues to pull that nonsense (she's a reporter -- she's supposed to be reporting, not offering her op-ed of who is a 'traitor' and who isn't -- her ass should have been fired).

He's going to talk about Iraq. Maybe Mara Liar-son will listen and note it when she's chatting and chewing the fat on Fox tomorrow?

Bill Christison will also be on and he's doing some powerful reporting on Israel (you can read it in CounterPunch -- you can read it on the website but there's more in the print copies).

And the one and only David Lindorff will be on. I'm not sure what he's going to be discussing. I think he might bring up the forgeries (the "yellowcake" nonsense) since Craig Unger's reporting got slammed this past week by one who likes to slam. But he will probably talk about his book since that's in the e-mail that was sent out on this weekend's shows. The book was written with Center for Constitutional Rights' Barbara Olshansky (the person Mike was trying to think of Thursday) and it's entitled The Case for Impeachment. It has a subtitle. I won't use it because for six years I've avoided saying "president" and that name. Don't make me blow it now.

What's up on Sunday? Three words are all you need to know: Mark Crispin Miller. The topic is the media system and he'll be in a roundtable with Makaini Themba-Nixon and Paul Miller addressing consolidation and more. Laura has a guest on Sunday whose name I'm not familiar with but should be, Meizhu Lui, co-author of The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the US Racial Wealth Divide (going right on my to read list) and also the Executive Director of United for a Fair Economy.

So "It's all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio." Make a point to listen. If you miss it, a shorter version of the program is archived (C.I.'s got a link for it on the left).
