The Annual Homelessness Marathon on WVEW-lp Wednesday Night

This Wednesday (February 17th, 2016) starting at 7pm and continuing until 9am Thursday morning, WVEW-lp (Brattleboro's all volunteer Community Radio station) will once again forgo its usual programming to air the annual Homelessness Marathon. It is not a fundraiser. It is the only national broadcast which addresses homelessness in our country, and is carried mostly on independent and Community Radio stations. This year the broadcast originates from the streets of Washington, D.C. The Marathon is sponsoring a petition to H.U.D. (the Department of Housing and Urban Development) for better treatment of people who are Homeless. You can sign the petition at their website:
http://news.homelessnessmarathon.org/

We hope you'll listen in.

WVEW-lp 107.7fm, or wvew.org

US Media Worships Republicans

If one looked at recent major media, one conclusion that could be reached is that only Republicans are running for office. There are endless stories about Trump, Carson, Cruz, Rubio, Bush, Graham, and the others. They get headlines and air time for simply existing. They get featured on Sunday political shows, and discussed and promoted by the Washington insiders and elite, as if nothing else was happening. All republicans are "serious candidates" even if they have no visible support.

One might think that Democrats no longer exist. But this is silly. Vermont's Bernie Sanders just broke a record for having 2 million online donations, more than any other candidate ever. He also just picked up the endorsement of an enormous union, the Communications Workers of America. And poll after poll show that he would trump Trump at the polls.
