Episode #991: Some Good News
First Broadcast: 6/10/24
Just in case you missed the news: Donald Trump is GUILTY! Guilty, guilty, guilty, etc., times 34! Guilty! He is a convicted felon, found guilty on May 30 by a jury of his peers of having committed 34 felonies in New York State, and will be sentenced on July 11, but not before submitting to a pre-sentencing interview ahead of time, where his mental health is likely to be addressed, among other things. As he has throughout this trial, Trump remains utterly unremorseful, evidenced by what he said in the courthouse immediately after the verdict:

"This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt as a rigged trial, a disgrace. ... This was a rigged, disgraceful trial."

And by what he said in the rambling speech he gave at Trump Toweer the day after the verdict:

As far as the trial itself, it was very unfair. We were not allowed to use our election expert under any circumstances. You saw what happened to some of the witnesses that were on our side. They were literally crucified by this man who looks like an angel, but he is really a devil. It looks so nice and soft. People say he'd seems like such a nice man. If you saw him in action, and you saw that with a certain witness that went through hell, when we wanted to do things he would not let us do those things. When the government wanted something they got everything, they got everything they wanted. It was a rigged trial.

Equally bizarre was the sentiment proclaimed by Trump and echoed by his acolytes that "if they can do this to me, they can do this to anyone." To which sane people will say, "Well, YES, that's the whole point! The law applies to everyone equally, whether you're a former President or not!" Trump and his cult, of course, believe the law should never apply to them, which is why Trump has argued that he deserves absolute immunity for everything, and why so many of his associates have been indicted, convicted, or otherwise mired in legal issues after emulating his behavior. Did we also mention that Alex Jones might have to sell his "InfoWars" site in order to pay the money he owes to the parents of the children who were murdered at Sandy Hook elementary school because he lied about the shooting being "a giant hoax" that was "completely fake"? Overall, not a bad week for people who acknowledge reality, for once!

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:

You can also email me at, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
