On the Show:

–Maria Armoudian, journalist and author of Kill the Messenger: The Media’s Role in the Fate of the World, joins us to talk about positive and negative effects of the changing media landscape, grassroots and astroturf movements, the internet and social media’s leveling of the playing field for many independent media outlets like The David Pakman Show, and much more.

–The CNN/Tea Party Express debate may have been one of the most ridiculously propagandistic in history, and during a discussion with Ron Paul about healthcare, the crowd starts cheering the idea of leaving an uninsured man without care, including yelling “let him die.”

–It is revealed that Ron Paul’s previous campaign manager, Kent Snyder, died of pneumonia, broke and without health insurance.

–New poverty statistics from the census bureau show the overall poverty rate has reached an all time high.

–In what hasn’t been reported nearly as extensively, women have become the invisible poor, and a more detailed look at the latest census statistics on poverty clearly reveal this.

–Netflix is raising prices, and has already started to lose customers, and we discuss whether the strategy makes sense, and whether David is going to cancel his account.

–A hate crime where a gay black man was killed by a group of white men who were out to find a black man to “mess with,” but it is barely covered in the media, and we wonder why.

–Are you currently addicted to anything? How is addition defined?

–Emails on Chaz Bono on Dancing with the Stars, Anonymous, Rick Perry giving “propes,” Catherine Hakim’s interview, and more.

–On the Bonus Show: 3 year olds branded as racists and put on watch list in the UK, reward offered if Bachmann HPV mental retardation story proven, ridiculous things governments ban, more.
