AlterNet Radio: GOP Smearing Republican Chuck Hagel; Point-Counterpoint on the Fiscal Deal; Katha Pollitt on How Feminists Did in 2013
We have a great radio show this week.
First, Ali Gharib of the Daily Beast's Open Zion blog explains why the neocons are gunning for Chuck Hagel, a rock-ribbed Republican and Obama's likely nominee for Secretary of Defense.
Then, a terrific debate as Michael Tomasky -- also with the Daily Beast -- argues that the deal struck this week to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" wasn't bad, and AlterNet's own Joshua Holland thinks it's a stinker.
Finally, author and Nation Magazine columnist Katha Pollitt looks back at the battles feminists won and lost in 2012.
If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at We Act Radio, and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast.
UPDATE: here it is!
