A friend at our local longtime peace gathering reminds me to get to know this media report: Thom Hartmann is live daily from noon-3 PM ET in Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Santa Fe, Pittsburgh, Memphis, Grand Rapids, and on over fifty other stations nationwide including Chicago, Washington DC, Santa Barbara, Minneapolis, and on XM and Sirius Satellite radio. He is also a four-time Project Censored-award-winning, New York Times best-selling author. His national daily progressive radio talk show, now in its sixth year on the air, replaced Al Franken on the Air America Radio Network, is also distributed to radio stations nationwide on the Jones Satellite system. More people listen daily to the Thom Hartmann Program than any other progressive talk show in the nation.

This worked because the site is so widely read by newspeople and by Congress Critters and Congress staffers. If Don Young and Ted Stevens crash, the friend said, well again TPM should get most of the credit. They have been reporting extensively on Sarah Palin (recently chosen Republican Vice President running mate from Alaska)...

Well, let's be sure to tune in all this week!
