We talk with Steven Greene, of NC State, and with Bill
Curry, former aide to Bill Clinton, about the fact that the US is now considered a backsliding democracy. Progressives are coopted by the money donors in the Democratic party. Local news sources are dying off, and the media eco system is ignoring local issues.
We talk with Barbara Anne Radnofsky, lawyer, writer, and with Terence O'Rourke, cousin and political aide to Beto O'Rourke about Beto's announcement of his candidacy for governor of Texas. There are many issues in Texas on which Beto will run: guns, the southern border, energy, and jobs.
