During our Pacifica Radio coverage of the (DNC) Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, we got a chance to talk w/ Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala of the Green Party. What they had to say was insightful and pretty much on the mark as we covered a wide range of issues including poverty and the lack of discussion around it during the DNC..
In terms of what it means for them to run, when they are virtually ignored by the mainstream press speaks volumes. It shows just how controlled and embedded the press which was once deemed the 4th Estate is when it comes to elections. When we did this interview we were right next to dozens of the top radio shows in the country. They were known to everyone, but ignored. The international press did interview them. It was bizarre to see the blatant omission..
Anyway hear what these two women have to say and decide for yourself what direction you wanna take come this November. co-hosting w/ me on this interview is Margret Prescod of from our sister station KPFK in LA
