October 14, 2011

I am live from Las Vegas at the Mass Tort Conference and it is anything but a casual Friday– Police threaten to remove Occupy protests across the country including NYC, Kansas City, Denver and San Diego. We will have a live report from OWS from our own Jeff S who has been down in Liberty Plaza, nee Zuccati Park since day one.

Also Cliff Schecter will join me from Las Vegas, songs from the Screaming Majority and Reefercake and that guy Chris something.

VOTE for the MAJORITY REPORT at podcastawards.com in the PEOPLE’s CHOICE and NEWS/POLITICS categories… YOU CAN VOTE ONCE EVERY DAY– please do!
