Virtually Speaking Sundays – a counterpoint to the Sunday morning talk shows.
Dec 22, 2013 – This week, commentators Dave Johnson (Campaign for America's Future) & Cliff Schecter (Libertas LLC) talk about good public policy as popular public policy. and how a government jobs program with a minimum wage increase would be both, e.g. Moral Mondays and Gillibrand's populist "Opportunity Agenda"
Then potential progressive options to a Clinton candidacy e.g., Sanders, Schweitzer, O'Malley; and the impact they may have on the Democratic Party as well as Clinton's positions and campaign.
Culture of Truth satirizes one or more of the Sunday Morning talk shows. Jay Ackroyd moderates. Follow @CliffSchecter @DCJohnson @JayAckroyd @Bobblespeak
