Corporate news has infantilized the national discourse. We need to tell people the whole truth, as best we can, about the urgency of this historical moment.

Corporate news rarely reveals the underlying interests that motivate individuals and classes to act as they do. In fact, they barely recognize that we live in a class society.

We take on important news stories as a way into a deeper examination of the economic, social and political forces that drive important events. Our aim is to reveal the economic relationships that are the foundation of political and social struggle.



We know the world can only be understood in the process of changing it.

Excellent ‘analysis’ of political and social struggle

Paul Jay takes an unflinching look at the economic relationships that are the foundation of political and social struggle, unafraid to speak guests from all ends of the economic spectrum. The Analysis is must listen in a corporate newscape that refuses to peek behind the curtain of an infantilized national discourse which might reveal the underlying interests and recognize how we live in an class society with levels of inequality unseen since the beginning of the Great Depression.

Amazing episode called Ukraine and doomsday machine!

Check out the April 29 episode and see why Paul Jay’s show is so amazing. Jay is solid, so he seems radical, but only because the truth is radical. He never goes off the deep end, But does his very best to tell it like it is and cut through the incredibly sick brainwashing that is shackling all of us as human beings and as revolutionaries.

Why analyse a book without reading it?

Usually the Analysis is pretty good. However, I am shocked and disappointed to listen to the “Clinton attacks Sanders . . .”. All this detailed analysis on a book that neither participate has even read. It is all based on few quotes on Facebook, perhaps the winner is Facebook - replacing book reading by selected posts!
