Episode #773: Threats and Things
First Broadcast: 8/14/17
The news is barreling ahead full speed these days, so we didn't talk much about Anthony Scaramucci being fired from the White House after only 10 days on the job; or the NAACP issuing a travel advisory for the state of Missouri; or the significance of the FBI searching the residence of former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Instead, we were more preoccupied with Trump vaguely threatening a nuclear war with North Korea, or at least that's how it sounded when he warned they would be met with "fire and fury" if they made "any more threats to the United States"--a line which caught his entire staff off guard, since he improvised it on the spot. I guess I should take the fact that we're all still here reading this as a good sign, even though this news has already been eclipsed by yet another horrific event, but that will just have to wait for next week... assuming there is a next week...
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
