So, you want us to go from listening to one bias extreme side to another? As long as bias and extremism coming from your side...its ok? All radio, paper and tv news is worthless. They have done more to hinder this nation than any war or politician.

My side? What side would that be Kooz? I'm just saying many on this site need to listen to all sides before they form an opinion. I listen to all sides I read right wing publications as well as left wing newspapers. I consider myself independent and have voted that way all my life. Its interesting to listen to differing points of views and tends to balance your argument. I can always tell the ditto heads who's only source is right wing media.

Just as sailors of long ago found that if they consumed nothing but meat on their long voyages they would soon come down with scurvy. So they balanced their diets with fruits and veggies and remained healthy.

Those who listen to WDTW without channel surfing are not in a liberal echo chamber, as they're getting CNN Radio News on the half hour.

I wish I had listened. Then I would know why Ricky was trespassing (camping) on a State Representative's lawn instead of out looking for work. That must have been great radio.

No worse than the Opel Covey interview Fred.

PRESS RELEASE

FRONTLINE INVESTIGATES THE ROOTS OF THE FINANCIAL CRISIS

FRONTLINE Presents
The Warning
Tuesday, October 20, 2009, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS

www.pbs.org/frontline/warning

"We didn't truly know the dangers of the market, because it was a dark market," says Brooksley Born, the head of an obscure federal regulatory agency -- the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) -- who not only warned of the potential for economic meltdown in the late 1990s, but also tried to convince the country's key economic powerbrokers to take actions that could have helped avert the crisis. "They were totally opposed to it," Born says. "That puzzled me. What was it that was in this market that had to be hidden?"

In The Warning, airing Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2009, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings), veteran FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk (Inside the Meltdown, Breaking the Bank) unearths the hidden history of the nation's worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. At the center of it all he finds Brooksley Born, who speaks for the first time on television about her failed campaign to regulate the secretive, multitrillion-dollar derivatives market whose crash helped trigger the financial collapse in the fall of 2008.

"I didn't know Brooksley Born," says former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, a member of President Clinton's powerful Working Group on Financial Markets. "I was told that she was irascible, difficult, stubborn, unreasonable." Levitt explains how the other principals of the Working Group -- former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin -- convinced him that Born's attempt to regulate the risky derivatives market could lead to financial turmoil, a conclusion he now believes was "clearly a mistake."

Born's battle behind closed doors was epic, Kirk finds. The members of the President's Working Group vehemently opposed regulation -- especially when proposed by a Washington outsider like Born.

"I walk into Brooksley's office one day; the blood has drained from her face," says Michael Greenberger, a former top official at the CFTC who worked closely with Born. "She's hanging up the telephone; she says to me: 'That was [former Assistant Treasury Secretary] Larry Summers. He says, "You're going to cause the worst financial crisis since the end of World War II."... [He says he has] 13 bankers in his office who informed him of this. Stop, right away. No more.'"

Greenspan, Rubin and Summers ultimately prevailed on Congress to stop Born and limit future regulation of derivatives. "Born faced a formidable struggle pushing for regulation at a time when the stock market was booming," Kirk says. "Alan Greenspan was the maestro, and both parties in Washington were united in a belief that the markets would take care of themselves."

Now, with many of the same men who shut down Born in key positions in the Obama administration, The Warning reveals the complicated politics that led to this crisis and what it may say about current attempts to prevent the next one.

"It'll happen again if we don't take the appropriate steps," Born warns. "There will be significant financial downturns and disasters attributed to this regulatory gap over and over until we learn from experience."

Then keep reading the Blade.

Keep watching CBS, NBC, and ABC.

Keep listening to NPR and Air America.

The rest of us, who want two sides to a disagreement, will keep listening to the other side of the conversation that is not being spoon-fed to America.

The rest of us, who will consider and thoughtfully listen to both sides of a debate (WHEN IT IS OFFERED) will seek out the "other side".

The rest of you can move from extremist left-wing hate newspapers, to  extremist left-wing hate radio, to extremist left-wing magazines, to extremist left-wing TV and lap up the one-sided lies the way a dog eats it's own vomit.

 

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.
