LibertyWeek 12: Hard Times in the Heartland

Your hosts Richard Morrison and Cord Blomquist welcome listeners back to another episode of LibertyWeek. The panel starts by reviewing movie news and taking notice of a major gathering of environmental journalists in nearby Virginia. News topics include the wildly fluctuating Dow Jones Industrial Average, the latest $250 billion worth of federal bailout money, an ongoing financial scandal in Congress, a new sex scandal in Congress, the future of FCC telephone deregulation, close antitrust scrutiny of Google and Yahoo and the latest in Olympic headlines. Also, your hosts extend special thanks to the audio wizardry of LibertyWeek’s technical director Ryan Young and the scheduling flexibility provided by blogger outreach guru Ryan Lynch.
