a collaboration with the Nation magazine and yours truly
Saturdays & Sundays, 7-10pm ET on Air America Radio

Four years after the invasion of Iraq, autocracy is taking its toll. We’ll hear from people who are taking to the streets, to the Congress and to the board rooms of this country to build a real democracy. SUNSARA TAYLOR reports from the ‘March on the Pentagon’ first up. Then MARK GREEN — Air America’s new president — ERIKA WOOD and MILES RAPAPORT lay out an agenda for Democracy. And finally, GIULIANA SGRENA, the Italian journalist who was kidnapped, released, and then shot by US troops…on the toll of the occupation, as seen by one reporter up close. Special Gift: Laura’s new book

SUNDAY journalist MARK BENJAMIN was reporting on the treatment of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed for years before the latest controversy made waves in the mainstream media. He’ll join us to discuss his latest report on injured troops being sent back to Iraq. Then, Nation contributor, JEREMY SCAHILL, on the world’s most powerful shadow army. Scahill’s new book is ‘Blackwater: The Rise of The World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army.’

It’s all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio.

No Comments to “Great line-up on Laura Flanders's show”

  • The country needs progressive radio to succeed. If Mark Green can turn Air America profitable that will be a good start.

    The Progressives waited too late to compete with the neocons over the airwaves.

  • Sunsara Taylor reporting, eh? An official from the Revolutionary Communist Party filing reports for Air America. Figures.
