Culture of Truth for VS Sundays: Orthrodoxy

11:58 pm in Uncategorized by California Sherry

Tonight on Virtually Speaking Sundays, political & social analysts digby and Marcy Wheeler consider Aaron Swartz, DOJ, WikiLeaks and PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records); Colin Powell, John Brennan and the CIA, Chuck Hagel and DoD. Jay Ackroyd moderated. They were outstanding! Follow @digby56 @emptywheel @Bobblespeak @JayAckroyd  Listen here.

The VS Media Panel: Avedon Carol, Cliff Schecter, Dave Dayen, Dave Johnson, Dave Waldman, Digby, Gaius Publius, Joan McCarter, Marcy Wheeler and Stuart Zechman.

Each Sunday, political satirist Culture of Truth tracks the Sunday Morning ‘News’ Shows, particularly Meet the Press. In The Bobblespeak Translations he gives us a laugh-out-loud, perceptive rundown, capturing “What They’re Really Saying When They’re Saying What They’re Saying.” Then, for Virtually Speaking Sundays, CoT crafts a short audio commentary, read aloud by one of several readers and capturing the most most ridiculous moment from Meet the Press. We run them as a bottom-of-the-hour segment during our Sunday shows and then at midnight eastern, I post them as stand-alone audio.

Based on this morning’s Bobblespeak Translation – read the whole post here – tonight’s most ridiculous moment is called “Orthodoxy.” Listen to it here.

I’m Culture of Truth,

The Sunday talk shows began on a humorous note, as George Stephanopoulos played a clip from the movie “Lincoln” showing brave statesmen voting for the 13th Amendment, and said the film quote “shows Congressman Clay Hawkins and others breaking with their party to oppose slavery, inspiration perhaps for our next guests, the new chairs of the No Labels movement, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin and former Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman.” unquote

After this unintentionally hilarious introduction, the two No Labels gentlemen of course refused to take a position on anything, except to assure viewers concerned about gun violence that both men quote “have been shooting since we were 5 or 6 years old,” unquote, and that Manchin will introduce a bill with conservative John McCain and liberal Joe Lieberman to put together a commission on mass violence, but that he can also quote “guarantee you there will not be an encroachment on your Second Amendment rights” unquote.

On Meet The Press, Mike Murphy said he was quote “puzzled” by the fact that President Obama’s pick to be Secretary of Defense has been called contentious, and also puzzled that there will also be a fight over Jack Lew, who he admitted is “totally qualified to be treasury secretary” unquote. Mike Murphy and Haley Barbour and Andrea Mitchell all pronounced themselves very confused and troubled as to why the President is nominating people he agrees with and not more conservative Republicans.

Colin Powell assured David Gregory that he is still a Republican, but observed quote that “There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the Party,” unquote.

Gregory expressed fear that with possible spending cuts, quote “we’re on the brink of creating a hollow force.” and asked “Would a Secretary of Defense Hagel preside over the hollowing out of the Defense Department?”

Powell reminded him that people worried about defense spending cuts quote “are the same people who are saying we have got to cut spending,” unquote

Powell blamed the invasion of Iraq on the CIA, saying quote “We subsequently found out that a lot of that information was not accurate and that is very unfortunate but that’s the way it unfolded,” but then a minute later said the war quote “was the correct thing to do and it was well supported by the intelligence.” unquote

But the most troubling moment came in a a discussion of torture. Gregory asked, quote “To the extent that enhanced interrogation techniques played some role in tracking down the courier which led to bin Laden, and I choose my words carefully, do the ends justify the means?” unquote

Powell argued that the military never committed waterboarding or other acts known to be torture, and said quote “we can’t be a nation that is lawless. We cannot be a nation that simply ignores our obligations to ourselves, our obligations to our constitution, our obligations to our own moral standing in the world.” unquote

Without missing a beat, as if he did not hear a single word Powell said, Gregory responded quote: “But the ends justify the means if you get bin Laden in the end?”

David Gregory usually invites classic centrist guests who will agree with his centrist Beltway views, but even if he has a guest who disagrees with this worldview, he either doesn’t hear it, or his brain simply cannot process any deviation from orthodoxy, especially one as fundamental as the idea that the ends justify the means. And that’s the most ridiculous thing that happened this Sunday.

Virtually Speaking A-Z | Stuart Zechman notes: “For at least two decades, it seems to me that the US political journalism’s culture of untruth has been the aggregate of a number of key activities in which the press either takes part or is the prime actor:

  1. maintaining secrecy/access regimes
  2. disseminating consumable narratives/creating consumable drama
  3. language making/enforcing
  4. role-playing/convention-advertising
  5. establishing centrist ideological orthodoxy as the default/”objective” view
  6. keeping itself in (big) business
  7. preserving its function as mediator between the objective world and ordinary people’s consciousness of it”

Sunday, March 6 to Thursday, March 10. We’re trying something new: double headers on Sundays and Thursdays, Virtually Speaking Susie on Mondays.  This could be good news or bad for listeners to the live programs. How’s your attention span? Do you want to listen live to some of your favorite liberal pundits/ educators/scientists talking about the SCOTUS, Congress, Pluto, security, health care etc. Or do you prefer to listen on demand or download a podcast and take it with you to the gym or the parkway?

Back-to-back programming involves some schedule juggling with the Blog Talk Radio archive. As soon as we complete a two hour block of programming, we have to split it into two – and assign a new url to one block so that each one hour block is searchable. It’ll cause a delay of three to six hours before one of the blocks is available in the BTR archive. Believe it or not, this actually solves a number of problems. Once we have the second url, I’ll add it to the right spot in this post. So we’ll see how it works out….

Sunday @ 8pm eastern|5pm pacific  •VIRTUALLY SPEAKING SUNDAYS: MAPLE SYRUP EDITION•

Canadian journalist Kevin Wood talks with bloggers, academics and other commentators, bringing a distinctively Northern progressive perspective and more than a little snark to North American and global politics among other topics.

This Sunday, March 6: multi-media artist Lindsay Stewart who blogs occasionally at Galloping Beaver, joins Kevin to tease out stories underlying the upcoming (Canadian) federal budget rounds, the likelihood of an election and the current government’s track record on copyright law. Listen live here at 8pm eastern|5pm pacific. Listen later here.

Sunday @ 9pm eastern|6pm pacific •VIRTUALLY SPEAKING SUNDAYS |

Our counterpoint to the Sunday Morning talking heads. I warm up with Culture of Truth’s Bobblespeak Translations, being careful not to laugh directly into my morning coffee. Two writers from the VSS media panel discuss developments of the week, often highlighting issues neglected or misrepresented on the Sunday morning broadcasts.

This Sunday, March 6 - Marcy Wheeler and Eve Gittelson, aka nyceve talk about the politics of health care reform and the state of the health insurance industry. Listen here at or after 9pm eastern |6pm pacific, Sunday March 6.

Mondays @ 11pm eastern | 8pm pacific| •VIRTUALLY SPEAKING SUSIE | Journalist and class warrior Susie Madrak explores the serious concerns and lighter-hearted fancies of a host of guests, always with an eye and ear for the daily lives of working class people.

This Monday, March 7 - Susie host two journalists who share a passion for music – Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News and Charles Pierce of the Boston Globe.  They compare notes on the ten CDs each would want  if they were stranded on a desert island. Be sure to call in with your top 10 desert island discs!. Listen at or after 8pm pacific. Monday March 7.

Thursdays @ 8:00 pm eastern | 5:00pm pacific • VIRTUALLY SPEAKING A to Z |
Jay Ackroyd and Stuart Zechman explore movement liberalism (as opposed to 3rd Way or centrist liberalism) in both an historical and current context; expressing liberal values. Sometimes with recorded and live voices of members of the VSS media panel, citizen activists and electeds. These guys get pretty exercised and it’s always interesting. If you’ve been getting the idea that ‘centrism is an ideology,’ likely you have Stuart to thank for the insight.

This Thursday, March 10 Listen LIVE at 8:00 pm eastern | 5:00pm pacific. Links to come.

Thursdays @ 6pm pacific | 9pm eastern •VIRTUALLY SPEAKING with JAY ACKROYD – IT pro and economist-by-training Jay Ackroyd chats with opinion makers and authors in media, politics, science, academia, foreign affairs, etc. From PZ Myers to Dahlia Lithwick, from Jay Rosen to Juan Cole to Lenore Skenazy, Jay has a remarkable ability to engage in meaningful conversation with an extensive network of well informed, articulate folks whose voices should reach far and wide.

This Thursday, March 10 – CW Anderson comes by to talk about the recent firing of NPR CEO Vivian Schiller, and what it means for politics and the future of journalism. Then the impact of wikileaks and other aspects of journalistic anthropology. Listen at or after 6pm pacific |8pm eastern.

Ok, got all that? Two Thursday program, two Sunday programs, one on Monday. Fortunately, they are all archived at BlogTalkRadio. You can download from BTR, subscribe free through iTunes or listen on the web, when it’s convenient. Also, there’s a calendar. As Susie says: ‘bookmark it.
