AlterNet Radio: What's At Stake in Wisconsin; Real "Defense" Budget Is $1 Trillion; the Right's Phony Race War

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, Joshua Holland talks to John Nichols, author of Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest, from Madison to Wall Street,about the latest in the effort to recall bought-and-paid-for Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and four Republican Senators.

Then we talk to Chris Hellman, a senior analyst with the National Priorities Project, about his group's new report showing how our "defense" spending is about twice as high as most people think.

Finally, we're joined by frequent AlterNet contributor Chauncey De Vega, who brings us up to speed on the right-wing media's fabricated race war -- you wouldn't know about it unless you watch Fox, read Drudge and Breitbart, or listen to conservative hate radio.

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 6 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.
