It's a Mad World

That's the only way to describe the day today...

Sarah Palin dissing the President on foreign soil. Why is that OK, but it wasn't when the Dixie Chicks said something negative about Bush?

Fox News airs Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi's rambling "speech" at the UN live for 90 minutes before finally breaking away. The same faux news organization that wouldn't run President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress cut back to the studio, pointing out the reference to Obama as "our son" as the main point of his diatribe.

A US Census worker was found hanged in Kentucky, with the word "Fed" scrawled across his body, and the FBI is investigating whether he was a victim of anti-government sentiment.

Mark Foley, the Congressman who had a penchant for sending provocative Instant Messages to pages, is now hosting a talk show in his former district in West Palm Beach.

And the hits just keep on rolling....

Tonight, we'll cover a number of stories.

We'll start with two young men who made a splash with their video coverage of the 9/12 rally in Washington DC. Erick Stoll and Chase Whiteside call themselves New Left Media, and they've gone viral:

Josh Silver, executive director of will join me to talk about the first attempt by the GOP to derail net neutrality regulations.

Mark Karlin
, editor and publisher of BuzzFlash, will join me to run down some of the bigger stories of the week.

And Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films will tell us about the release of the DVD version of Rethink Afghanistan, and talk about the events and news this week concerning our involvement there.

Yes, we have a lot of ground to cover tonight. Listen live here from 11pm-1am ET, call in at 866-303-2270, and hang out with us in the chat room here.
