Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman
Kagro in the Morning - April 20, 2015

Guy who flew his gyrocopter into DC to protest big money in politics is baffled as to how people have become distracted from his message. Lazy, shiftless workers skip out on their jobs. Oh, I mean, patriotic first responders express "safety concerns." Big story of the day: for decades, the FBI's crime lab techs helped convict defendants based on seriously flawed hair "matching" analyses. But the flaws are way, way bigger than the analyses themselves! Arliss Bunny helps us explain why. Did Tulsa Co. falsify Robert Bates' training records? The records he's provided don't actually measure up. It's no surprise that the wealthy want/need the rest of us to think of free markets as "natural." Just how far off the mark might that be?
