April 4, 2014

Political maestro Cliff Schecter explains how Citizens United led to McCutcheon, what comes after McCutcheon, how Justice Robert’s is sneaky, the Court’s shocking narrowing of the definition of corruption and why they are betraying the founders, Andrew Cuomo betrays the public on clean elections, Cuomo’s clean election laughable scam, why Cuomo is a relentless lier, Cuomo’s double game with state Republicans, his plutocrat friendly austerity budget, the Cuomo Administration’s insane definition of what middle class is, why Cuomo is bed with the charter school project and what the left needs to do to battle Cuomo.

Isabel Gillies does not have the Majority Report App, big protests against testing Brooklyn, the problems with high stakes testing, the private push behind testing, picking a photo for Isabel’s new book, how families should catch with each other at the end of the day, the decision to be a star and Isabel suggested the movies: MulanTwenty Feet From Stardom and Mitt

A New York City public school teacher calls in with a breakdown of how disgusting New York’s new standardized test, product placements in the tests and why we need to boycott tests and your calls and IMs.
