Mass Media Infotainment: We Can't Break Through Without You!

From Between the Lines

Day after day, month after month, corporate media outlets pump stories out to our television sets, radio, Internet sites, newspapers and magazines with Tiger Woods' recent car accident and sex scandal; excruciating detail about the exploits of the "balloon boy," and Sarah Palin's "tweets." .

Given what passes for news and political dialogue in the U.S. these days, it's no wonder you're searching for something of substance -- news that actually examines critical issues from points of view that don't find a home in the "mainstream."

At Between The Lines Radio Newsmagazine, we're proud to bring you critical analysis on a wide range of issues including the failures of our capitalist system; voices of dissent organizing opposition to President Obama's escalation of the Afghan war; the Obama administration's willingness to tolerate the violence and repression of the coup regime in Honduras; and eyewitness accounts of a growing citizens movement in Appalachia willing to risk arrest to stop coal company's from environmentally-destructive mountain top removal coal mining.

If you want alternatives to the right-wing rantings of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly -- and more in-depth coverage of important issues than you get from either the timid beltway press corps or the "liberal" cable TV Democratic party defense committee, we hope you'll support Between the Lines with a small or large end-of-year contribution.
