Full Program



Part 1

We begin with the release today of the so-called “perversion files” that the Oregon Supreme Court forced the Boy Scouts of America to make public. Peter Zuckerman, who broke the story of child sex abuse in the Boy Scouts for the Idaho Falls Post Register joins us. Peter was hounded by Idaho’s richest man who tried to stop publication of the expose by outing the reporter and his partner. That man, Frank VanderSloot, is now one of Mitt Romney’s biggest donors and the National Finance Committee co-chair of the Romney for President Campaign. peter zuckerman

Then we examine the China-bashing that went on in the last presidential debate with Clyde Prestowitz, who is the former counselor to the Secretary of Commerce and the founder and president of the Economic Strategy Institute. We discuss why China’s middle class is growing and ours is shrinking and Clyde Prestowitz’s article at CNN “Can iPhones and iPads be Made in the USA?”
