Episode #776: All Power's Out
First Broadcast: 9/25/17
If you don't already know, Hurricane Maria knocked out all of the power in Puerto Rico--a U.S. territory with a larger population than the state of Iowa--and the government there estimates that the whole island might be without electricity for "four to six months." Can you imagine anyone announcing that one of the 50 states would be without electricity for half a year? It's appalling and ridiculous, and the American citizens there deserve better assistance than that. Of course, considering how President Trump seems to spend more time making ridiculous speeches that violate the law, and considering that his party loves to waste time making sure no one has affordable health care, we better not hold our collective breath.
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
