Welcome to Liberally Correct!
Liberally Correct brings its great saga on the media to a close with a discussion on the oldest form of journalism: print. Eric Mack and Brett Madsen discuss the work that the New York Times and Washington Post have done in the aftermath of the election and how very few outlets seem to have the capability to do the type of investigative reporting that can make a difference. They also discuss the transition from consumption of print news via a morning newspaper versus a continuous 24/7 feed that is frequently consumed in an aggregated form.

This Episode’s 45 RPM Single
In each episode, we will create a 45 RPM single with the intro and outro music (each typically taken from the same album). The intro music is the A-side; the outro music is the B-side. We believe music should be more relevant when it comes to politics, so we’re showcasing some songs we like each episode.
Even though this technically violates copyright law since the songs are not “podsafe,” you have options below to stream or buy the album or songs in order to offset any potential revenue lost on the part of the artist or record label. (Hopefully this will keep them from coming after us to cease and desist for, you know, giving their music free advertising.)
If you like what you hear, give it some extra spins (and let us know in the comments below that you’re buying or streaming the songs so we can actually have a legal defense in the future).
A-side: “Talk Show On Mute” by Incubus, from A Crow Left of the Murder… (2004)
B-side: “Megalomaniac” by Incubus, from A Crow Left of the Murder… (2004)
