Laura Flanders - far far left but fun to listen to

About: laura flanders.com

I used to listen to her on a long drive to work. Although she is so far left that she ends up in the red zone most of the time she is at least consistently passionate.
Occasionally I listen to somebody who is just completely wrong in the same way that WFB would debate the far left, just to hone my clarity on the issues.

Mark de LA says
Watch her promo for Independent World Television here . Seth would probably agree with most of ITV's promo from their main page

Seth would probably agree ...
she has a blog ... i subscribed her to my a list.

Mark de LA says
Highlites of some of her shows can be heard here. Some of them look like they are right up Seth;'s alley. Be careful some topics do not hit their target. For example the one about Lt. Watada did not talk about him - it must have been later in the show.  If you want, though full podcasts are available to subscribers.

Me, i listen to Randi Rhodes, Air America 1090 ...





Mark de LA says
IWT has morphed into http://www.therealnews.com/web/index.php - a misnomer to be sure. At least they are somewhat up-front on what their agenda (business plan) is:
source: ...

Below are the opening lines of our business plan.

Witness the perilous times we live in:

- The intensification of the global struggle for control of oil

- The undermining of democracies, human rights and international law

- The waging of illegal wars and occupations

- A majority of people suffering in dire poverty

- Impending irreversible environmental damage

- Millions dying globally from inaction on AIDS

- Massive state and corporate corruption

- The threat of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons

- Powerful forces driven by apocalyptic visions and dreams of empire


I guess if you want to see evil and bad everywhere you will love to watch therealnews or just go for the M$M.

From where i sit, the left looking at the right, and the right looking at the left feels pretty much the same - just the names on the signs are changed -  the texture is the same. 
...  your moral equivalency notwithstanding, eh?
Been there, done that with you before ... things never change, huh?
IMHO, it is intellectually lazy & dull thinking to say that everyone does it or is equally culpable: one side is just as bad as the other .  It's just a cop-out.
But that (bold and italic) is not what i said.  Actually i said something new.  You might try parsing what i did say again.

You must have blinked.  I upped the level of discussion to the general moral equivalency arguments.

This is now what Obama wants to be called.   (Progressive)  Laura Flanders & others have been preaching from this banner for quite a few years.  Here is one of her recent podcasts on the New Deal of FDR.  Let's see now, Progressives are on the radical end of Liberalism.


Mark de LA says
It looks like Randi Rhodes got a little bit too randy. Apparently some on the progressive left are down to the bottom swear words.  Nothing subtle here. Read the article for more.
source: ...

During what was an apparent stand-up routine, Rhodes attacked Ferraro, the former vice presidential candidate, for saying that Clinton rival Barack Obama has benefited in the Democratic presidential race because he is black.
