It’s unfiltered and uncensored, a chance for you to be a ‘fly on the wall’ listening in to a conversation between three journalists and critics of today’s ever too cosy media and public relations convergence masquerading as mainstream media news coverage.
We push tough issues and ask tough questions that you want to see answered. More than just a fine w(h)ine, we offer solutions to key issues and demand accountability for you the listener.
This week Denis, Dario and Phil discuss:
- Pope Francis is he a true liberal reformer or a Jesuit conundrum wrapped in an enigma?
- Cardiff airport is a transportation disaster. This week they set it to song manufacturing a lame flash mob video.
- Tesco’s literal buttermilk advert ‘cock-up’ and the broader rolling disasters at the world’s third largest supermarket retailer.
- Labour and Tories have problems to their Left and Right wings… how far must they go to support their base and the eerie parallels to the right’s US Tea Party and left’s darling, the very progressive and popular Senator Elizabeth Warren.
- The NHS has a £20 billion quid funding gap and the recent ombudsman report shows major structural problems.
- Aberystwth University’s chancellor is failing up! She gets a 9.5% performance pay rise while her school drops precipitously in the degree and marking tables.
- Less than one week until the US midterm elections and who will win?
- Ferguson October was the lede today on UKProgressive.co.uk by Jeanine Molloff about the whitewash of civil rights and inherent US racism in the USA and this election.
- Baseball’s World Series ends, did anyone watch this now regional sporting event with ‘World’ in its title.
- Should the newly released from prison footballer (and convicted rapist) Chad Evans be allowed to return to the football pitch?
