As we continue our election coverage and making sense of what happened and what is to come, we’ll speak with Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka. Baraka will address the blame game that’s already started against third party candidates for Trump’s win, and how important it is for progressives to resist the president elect’s agenda. And, Antonio Gonzales of the Willie C. Velasquez Institute will join us to understand demographic voting trends, how whites and Latinos voted in particular. Plus Patty Lovera of Food and Water Watch will discuss Trump’s climate denialism and whether all of the modest gains of the Obama administration on climate might be undone in the next four years.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.

    I am astonished at how unabashedly biased Sonali is; I read she was originally supported by SOROS who has now turned his attention to financing BLM type organizations. KPFA’s founder I think killed himself because his dream for a fair and honest radio that allowed all points of views presented by those who professed those views was the key to ending war because people would understand opposing views and this would stop the demonization of opposing views by the people with power to control the media. Sonali represents, as does KPFA in general, sadly, the Opposite of what KPFA was created to do. In a real way this is profoundly shameful–yet what is shame for those incapable of feeling it.

      The fairness doctrine was abandoned by the FCC in 1988, so by now who’s NOT biased and/or partisan? 🙁
      I’d try to go back to NPR but now the Koch brothers are sponsoring. Even more suspiciousthan Mobil sponsorship. I can deal with funding by Bill& Melinda GatesFoundation, and the Bernard Osher Foundation but not from these guys.
