Political Analysis

From the grassroots to Washington and beyond, the realities of politics and power are routinely cloaked in euphemism and evasion.
Political Analysis - “Whistleblowers: Democracy’s Last Line of Defense” - 06/26/14

Tonight, Sandy LeonVest is joined by Norman Solomon, founder of the Institute for Public Accuracy and co-founder of the just-launched whistleblowers resource, ExposeFacts.org, along with Treasure Island whistleblower Kathryn Lundgren. The three of them blow the whistle on crimes against democracy -- and the criminals who perpetrate them. 

Norman Solomon is an internationally acclaimed political journalist, media critic, author of countless books -- AND the original host of Political Analysis, before passing the torch to Sandy in 2009, when he decided to run for congress. 

Kathryn Lundgren has been a resident of Treasure Island (San Francisco), California for ten years. When every member of her family began experiencing symptoms of illness -- all of them serious -- she began researching the island's history. In the process of "turning over stones," she discovered that the former US Navy training base harbored a witches' brew of toxic substances -- including asbestos, mold AND radioactive waste. Her courageous and ongoing struggle to inform, protect and defend the health and welfare of her family -- and her community -- has pit Kathryn Lundgren against a "battery of beasts," including Big Developers, the SF political establishment AND the US Navy.
