TONIGHT at 7 p.m. EST
LIVE on 880 AM in South Florida or 880thebiz.com from everywhere.
If corporations are legally considered people, then why aren’t the most profitable paying taxes? GE, alone, claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion for 2010! Two days before Tax Day, we’ll talk to Joshua
Holland, editor and senior writer for Alternet, and author of The 15 Biggest Lies About the Economy (and Everything Else the Right Doesn’t Want you to Know About Taxes, Jobs, and Corporate America) to find out how corporations get the breaks and we pick up the tab.
Slate called it “one of the meanest Supreme Court decisions ever written.” Who is responsible when an innocent man sits on death row for fourteen years? If a government prosecutor withheld evidence? If
the prosecution team covered it up? John Thompson, the man at the center of this case, will be joining us live. You may have read his op-ed in The New York Times this week. If you haven’t,
you should. We’ll talk to Benétta M. Standly, Director of the ACLU Northeast Region and Barney Brown, who was wrongfully convicted when he was only 14-years-old and spent 38 years in prison. Finally, we’ll talk to Leslie Neal, Founder and Artistic Director of ArtSpring, which provides arts-based educational programming to incarcerated people about how she managed to produce a play starring inmates in Homestead this weekend.
