Wake up, get informed!
A letter in today's Missoulian:
To my fellow citizens. Wake up! Your future is being stolen by the present administration. Your jobs are being sent overseas; your future is absolutely threatened with being saddled with debt into the future for your children and grandchildren for who knows how long. Get informed. Listen to Amy Goodman's program “Democracy Now” on TV's MCAT Channel 7 at 6 a.m. and again at 10 a.m. for real news and interviews you don't get in the regular media. If you haven't time for the TV show you can get it on the Internet democracynow.org every day (Monday through Friday) also on iPod. If you listen to radio talk shows, listen to Air America at 105.9 FM with various talk hosts form early morning all day and evenings. Rachel Maddow, Al Franken, Randy Rhodes, Ed Schultz and Dave Hartman, etc. They interview knowledgeable people, senators, congressman, authors and others as well as taking comments from the public. Elections of senators and congressmen are coming up in November 2006. It is important to know the issues. Remember, your future is at stake. Florence Chessin, MissoulaCool! I hadn't heard of "Democracy Now!" before. Unfortunately it looks like we've lost KKNS, our Air American affiliate. Hopefully I'll have a post up later with more information on that. Matt Singer was right: "If any there are any enterprising soon-to-be graduates of the Radio/TV program who think they could make an affiliate fly, I’d actually be interested in investing. If Franken was outperforming Rush, there’s got to be a way to make it profitable."
