One of the best of the left
Along with Democracy Now!, Flashpoints is a daily must. At least it is for me. :)
Solid Investigative Journalism
Flashpoints is an exceptionally powerful program broadcast each weekday on KPFA, in Berkeley, CA. Topics covered include live reports from Israeli occupied Palestine, post-coup Haiti, and other hotspots, along with reports uncovering corruption wherever it is discovered. This is a rare offering that we listen to regularly - often recording notes for later study.
Best analysis on current events.
Not watered down by grants and commercial interests. Wonderful cast of analysts.
