THIS WEEK'S EPISODE:

Episode #717: Parry Back and Forth
First Broadcast: 11/16/15
Repeated: 2/1/16
Watching the Republican Presidential candidates debate on November 10th was yet another exercise in masochism for someone like me who values actual facts in discourse. For example, Ben Carson was wrong when he said "Every time we raise the minimum wage, the number of jobless people increases." Marco Rubio was wrong when he said "Welders make more money than philosophers." Ted Cruz was wrong when he said "The Obama economy is a disaster." Donald Trump was wrong when he implied that the U.S. military was not "bigger, better, stronger" than any other country's. I could go on, but why dwell on how none of these people know what they're talking about? Surely, I'll have plenty more opportunities to do that in the next year or so...

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 fny@freenewyork.net, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.


And now, the "Thought of the Moment" . . .

Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
