Radio Topics: 1) Debt Wars in Washington 2) Rupert Murdoch & Freedom of the Press 3) Emmy Nominations

The Mary & Tracy Show: Commentary on Current Events

by Mary Tracy Show

Topics we discussed on this show:

President Barack Obama with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA). Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Joh Kyl (R-AZ), Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) during Budget negotiations

 1) Debt Wars in Washington

Its all about the art of the deal, as President Obama and Congressional leaders try to raise the debt limit so we don’t default as a nation, and more important, we make sure social security and medicare checks go out to our elderly next month.  A new poll shows Americans will blame the Republicans if we default on the debt.  Time to eat your peas, Tea Party-ers. 

2) Rupert Murdoch and Freedom of the Press

Richard Bond

Rupert Murdoch owns major media in the U.S., Britain and other countries, including the Wall Street Journal and Fox News, and he’s not shy about trying to influence elections here or abroad.  People have been afraid to speak out for years, but the dam broke this week.  It turns out his minions have been hacking cell phones belonging to dead children, dead soldiers, and possibly even families of 9/11 victims here in New York.  The FBI is now investigating.  What are the implications for the U.S.?

3) Emmy Nominations 

Our favorites, “Mad Men” and “Boardwalk Empire” are nominated, as is “Dexter” and Betty White, Julianne Margulies and a host of reality shows.  Are yours?  If you had to choose, who would you vote for: John Hamm or Steven Buscemi? Betty White or Sophia Vergara?  How about Peter Dinklage or Chris Colfer? Lots of tough decisions this year!
