Coming up with Bishop On Air: They're asking the wrong question, was it just a crash, and pay equality ... that's all ahead from 10 to noon on 970 WMAY.
The big question of the day today is "Where is Edward Snowden?" But by asking only that question, media around the country are avoiding the even deeper and more profound question of what are the programs he disclosed capable of doing. Even more alarming is what have the programs he disclosed already done? We'll air clips from Russell Tice on the Boiling Frogs podcast. Tice is a former NSA employee who blew the whistle on this whole deal years ago, but didn't get nearly the recognition that Snowden is now getting. Tice came out with guns blazing. Wait until you hear the boil-down of Tice's comments.
No foul play?
He sent an email to several people saying those close to him were being interviewed by the FBI. Just hours later, investigative reporter Michael Hastings died after his vehicle burst into flames. LA Police say there's no fowl play. The FBI denies investigating the investigative reporter. Would they tell you if they were? There are some other bizarre things concerning this story. Watch below some eyewitnesses talking about the sound of an explosion going off so loud it shook windows.
Is there more to this story than the media is willing to investigate? We'll have to put this story out there for all to ponder a bit more deeply.
There's a ton of talk about pay equality. A lot of times the conversation centers around the inequality of men vs. women who work in the same jobs. But that's not the conversation du jour. We'll have another chance today to ask the question--Do state workers make too much money? The State Journal-Register published a bunch of stories about the so-called $100,000 Club. Let's get into some of the numbers and get a sentiment from you the listeners about again whether we feel we're getting our money's worth.
