Global family child ,

Excellent for understanding progressive views

i first heard Between The Lines back in the 1990s and not being a political or news junkie, had never heard of "progressive" political views. it was a great way to get familiar with alternative views not found in mainstream corporate media

Between the Lines

Fine show until they turned pro Democrat and pro Ukraine War. Oh well. You can’t be Progressive and support the Democrats and their love of the arms industry. Another Progressive organization spurned sour.

BTL Rules!
