September 25, 2013

Tina Dupuy the editor-in-chief of The Contributor explains what the goal of the Contributor is, why America needs substantive news coverage and why journalists need to be paid, why the economics of modern journalism is classist and why mainstream media does not understand economic issues.

Nicole Belle, explains why journalists like Chuck Todd will not cover the facts of Healthcare reform, why Todd and other mainstream journalists don’t think fact checking is part of their jobs and the toxic relationship between the mainstream media and politicians.

On The Better Half: Ted Cruz mounts crazy “filibuster” reads from Green Eggs and Ham and totally misses the point of the book, Cruz also does a pretty bad Darth Vader, new facts on Healthcare reform and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
