Review of War News Radio
Informative, in-depth reporting on Iraq and US policy by promising student journalists. This show is always worth listening to.
I always feel so much more informed after listening to War News Radio. They cover the lesser known issues about the war and get very in depth. It is one of my favourite podcasts.
Wake up people.
We have unfortunatley reached a point in the Information Revolution where we must be selective about the information that we let inside of our heads. I urge all of you to renounce all cable news networks and to take advantage of the new advances in technology to stay informed of what your country, and your species (i.e. the human race) is up to. Do not fall prey to the drive-by media, the media of frenzy and paranoia. And regardless, be critical and sceptical about everything you hear. Don't fall prey to cynicism. I believe that WNR shares these concerns.
