10/15 Jamie Kilstein & Allison Kilkenny: Newsfail

October 15, 2014

Citizen Radio co-hosts and co-authors of Newsfail  Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny explain what inspired their book, why Allison quit the Nation, diversity and progressive media, who Jamie and Allison read, the problems with Jon Stewart and the Daily Show, debating Stephen Colbert, why MSNBC is losing viewers, the future of online news, supporting values instead of teams, the real reforms we need, a Guarrilla strategy for independent media and if you had the power to change one thing in politics what would it be?

On The Fun Half: the CIA finds its own counter insurgency policies are failures, a new Ebola case in Texas, culture and the profit motive, money as distinct from value, why Millennials are driving less and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
