The Monday Wire Hosted By José Barbosa

US Primary Special

12:00 News, Weather and Surf with Angus

12:15 Sasha Abramsky, blogger for Guardian America
Sasha sez for the first time in fifteen years it's now "cool" to hold political views, what's changed. We also look at California (Sasha's home state) which was very important for Hillary Clinton and we have a natter about the Republicans and how divisive John McCain is.

12:40 Sheldon Rampton, editor of PRWatch.
With Sheldon we'll be looking at how the media has covered the different candidates. No doubt Fox News will have offered up some porkers.

1:00 Brooks Jackson from goes through every statement made by the candidates about their opposition and, duh, checks the facts.

1:30 Graphic Novelties with Captain Critic
Back to normal broadcast with the Captain. This week we're looking at that hipster fave Love and Rockets.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
