William Rivers Pitt is the editor and columnist for the frontline Progressive news site truthout.org. He just celebrated ten years writing there and tonight I'll be interviewing him on air on Progressive Blend Radio live, together with DJ Downtown and Eddie Herradura. The More Me Show starts at 5PM EST and the interview is at 8 or 8:30. Listen to us live or look for the podcasts which will be posted within a day or two after. You can follow Progressive Blend Radio at the station website or through their site at Facebook. Both places host a Ustream feed and chatrooms when the show is on air. Listen in, join in, tell your friends, enjoy!!
Been mostly out loud for a long time. Committing some of the noise to readable bytes.
I occasionally go by my initials, ba, but I'm using a nom de revolucion bestowed on me by the good fellows who operate Progressive Blend Radio. You'll have to check with them for an explanation of the name, though I suspect that my general point of view and method of displaying it goes a fair way to providing at least some clues.
I'm a lawyer by trade, historian and history teacher by education, and a political commentator by inclination. My mom tells me I was following politics by the time I was about 6 years old. I don't know why, it just always seemed to matter to me. It might be because I took the fact that my birthday is July 4th (yes it is) seriously as an American. I believe the evidence shows this country was founded on classically liberal principles and that we need to rediscover what that means and how it applies in our time if we wish to survive as the kind of nation our founders envisioned.
