Another great episode by Bob and Brooke after their three week series on alleged bias on NPR. Can't say enough good things about them and their show.

Did you hear the interview with James O'Keefe? I don't think that guy knows the meaning of any words he says. Not a single one. He's like that Dave Foley character in KITH that speaks phonetically.

I'm way behind on my podcasts but really looking forward to hearing this. Great program.

why just egypt - i just saw in my twitter feed that a guy is shooting up in a burlington MA mall and its not in the news yet but to please pass it on to others in the area.

Media has changed. And I wonder if the medium is the message anymore in situations/cases like these? Or does McLuhan's vision hold true like a mathematical theorem? Perhaps, in Libya it does, if the internet works for you, that's the message?
