This week, in a recorded interview Greg Palast (above) will be heard discussing his recent conversation with Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and her effort to force a recount of the votes cast in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Palast, in his latest movie The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, warned about a tactic called “cross-check” that had and has been employed in Republican controlled states to illegally purge election rolls of thousands of voters, which may be responsible for the slim Trump victory in those battleground states. Stay tuned. All may not be lost after all.
Later, Craig Harrington Economic Program Director for Media Matters for America will join Steve and Lew to talk about President-elect Trump’s threat to change libel laws to attack press that is critical of him, fake news, and the connection of Steve Bannon to early efforts to discredit Hillary Clinton.
