David Swanson on Bankruptcy Bill, Sarah Posner Low-Power Radio
As we record this week's show, the House is voting on bankruptcy legislation that's been under discussion for week. Our guest says despite the quantity of coverage, the public still may be confused about what the changes would actually do -- and not do -- and that media have to take some blame for that. We'll hear from David Swanson of debtslavery.org on that story.

Also on the show: when the FCC legalized low power radio back in 1999, media activists saw it as a real challenge to the media giants, and a return to radio's localism roots. But something else happened too-- right-wing Christian broadcasters figured out how to take local programming national. Reporter Sarah Posner will join us to explain how it all happened.
