Coming up on today’s show, we have Joan McCarter from Daily Kos back on the show to give us an update on the internet privacy shredding bill CISPA and the ongoing threats from Republicans and Democrats to the social safety net.
We also have author Larry Siems here to discuss his important new book The Torture Report: What The Documents Say About America’s Post 9/11 Torture Program.
We’ll also discuss how the mainstream media is underplaying the May Day protests, an appeals court ruling John Yoo can’t be sued for torture, and the President of the University of California telling students, faculty, and staff to “Avoid All Protests.“
