Episode #754: Good God, I Need An Excedrin
First Broadcast: 1/16/17
On January 11, President-Elect Donald Trump held his first press conference in six months, and essentially told the world that, despite all pretenses to the contrary, there would essentially be no ethical separation between himself and his business, no release of his tax returns, no answers to questions from CNN, no avoiding inherent violations of the Constitution, and no end to using his signature catch phrase, which inadvertantly showed that he had no intention of relenquishing any control of his vast entanglement of financial schemes. This all seems to be continuing proof that time travel has not yet been invented, because no one has come back here from the future to stop any of this from happening. Oh, and Trump continues to fuel speculation that he's completely under the thumb of Vladimir Putin and who-knows-how-many other Russian interests, so we got that going for us.

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, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.

And now, the "Thought of the Moment" . . .

Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
