Is Congress about to pass Fast Track trade authority and the endless failures of Neo-Liberal policy.

Tom Scharpling the host of the Best Show Ever, explains how he helped create the Majority Report, why before the invasion of Iraq there no real voices of dissent in mainstream, Sam’s experience making A Bad Situationistwhy Tom is ending his show and Tom suggested the “boring” documentary Salinger.
