Dick and Sharon of the LA Progressive sat down with Ms. Fleming on the anniversary of 9/11 on MP Chronicles’s The Blk Grrl Show to talk about the impact that 9/11 has had on the lives of Americans since that fateful day in 2001.
Marcy Wheeler: As King explained to Wolf Blitzer two days after this conversation with NYT journalists – even as he was calling for an investigation into the the people leaking classified information – he had been in a number of Top Secret briefings on the plot.
Gary Corseri: It has been about 40 years since I thought Joan Rivers somewhat amusing. How in hell does the news of her passing take priority over the lives and concerns of millions of working Americans?
Edward Wasserman: Among journalism commentators, the actions reawakened the perennial debate over the proper use of gruesome imagery in news reportage. Is it an indispensable part of truth-telling or a pointless indulgence that borders on the pornographic?
Randy Shaw: Top viewed news and video traffic are far more likely to involve cats, babies, celebrities or corporate-funded stories than information that helps people make sound policy choices for society or their own lives.
Tara Culp-Ressler: Even with strengthened state and federal laws, legal challenges against revenge porn often face an uphill battle thanks to the 1996 Communications Decency Act, a federal law that courts have interpreted to mean that websites aren’t liable for users’ content.
Marcy Wheeler: Last week focused a lot of attention on New York Times reporter James Risen, who is facing the threat of jail time for refusing to testify in a leak case against former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling.
Nia-Malika Henderson: Over the last years, with her reality shows, Palin went the Kardashian route, but now she will add a dash of her early professional life as well, offering up all things Palin via your tablet, phone, or computer.
Carole Bartolotto: The problem with concluding that GMOs are safe is that the argument for their safety rests solely on animal studies. These studies are offered as evidence that the debate over GMOs is over. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Mary Beth Fielder: Replacing your lawn with natives is a win-win-win-win. Restore the eco-system and bring back the native birds, bees and insects, save water, save money and create something beautiful in the process.
