Disclaimer: We have to say "tentative" for these arrangements because all three of these planned interviews are with folks who are movers and shakers and have big responsibility for workshop presentations and major coordinating work at the United States Social Forum. Calls with KSKQ will likely be on cell phones from our Atlanta participants and the list of things that could go wrong are large, but never-fear we have a great plan to bring our listeners some first-hand reporting LIVE from the US Social Forum in Atlanta. With that we want to thank ALL three proposed interviewees in advance, Nancy, Linda and Sarita: T H A N K * Y O U ! ! !

Haven't heard of the United States Social Forum? or maybe the World Social Forum? If you answer this "No" which is likely for the far majority of US residents - then the next question is: Do people not know because they don't care? I'll offer up the opinion that it is NOT because people don't care, but this ignorance is because of the massive failing of our mainstream media. Reports on Paris Hilton far outnumber Real News and this example stands as just another when we talk about the failing mainstream media in this country.
