The Ed Morrissey Show: Andrew Malcolm, Fausta Wertz
posted at 1:00 pm on June 30, 2009 by Ed Morrissey
Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), I get to talk to two good friends! First, Andrew Malcolm of the LA Times’ blog Top of the Ticket joins us to talk about politics and media. I’ll ask Andrew about Assembly Speaker Karen Bass and her statement to the LAT that calling politicians to instruct them on their vote is equivalent to “terrorism”, and we’ll talk more about the Obama administration as well.
In the second half, I welcome back Fausta Wertz to discuss the coup/non-coup in Honduras. Fausta and I will debate whether this was a coup, and we’ll talk about the Obama administration’s predilection for interference in Honduras, contrasted to his refusal to criticize Iran for its violent repression for over a week. Fausta joins us on web-cam for this appearance!
