Why Our Fears Don’t Always Match the Facts," will help us find a place between fear and fact.  Join us!

WikiWoes

The White House is urging the website WikiLeaks to not publish any more classified documents related to the Afghan War, saying it is important that no more damage be done to U.S. National Security. In April, WikiLeaks posted classified video of a 2007 helicopter strike in Iraq that killed two Iraqis who were on assignment for a news agency. Media law and ethics professor Dr. Joyce Hoffmann with Old Dominion University's English Department is our guest in studio.

Wednesday, August 4 - Red Families v. Blue Families

Posted by: danny 8/4/2010 6:55 PM

Wednesday, August 4
Red Families v. Blue Families

Given the recent national debates over health care, environmental data, same sex marriage, and economic issues, it's interesting to see how the traditional "red" versus "blue" political divide reflects an even deeper divide in family life and values.  When Virginia turned "blue" in the last Presidential election, what did that say about the people of the Commonwealth?  Family law scholars Naomi Cahn and June Carbone examine America's bitter culture wars in the new book, Red Families v. Blue Families. They'll join HearSay host Cathy Lewis for the discussion today.
