"It seems a sort of poke in the eye when Hillary Clinton had this opportunity to try to bridge to the progressives and really build an alliance against Trump, and instead she went with one of the more conservative Democrats in the U.S. Senate."

– Jeff Cohen, associate professor of journalism and director, Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, on Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's selection of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her vice presidential running mate

Sanders Supporters Disaffected Over Clinton's Choice of Sen. Tim Kaine as Running Mate

MP3 Interview with Jeff Cohen, associate professor of journalism and director, Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, conducted by Scott Harris

kaine

On the Friday before the Democratic National Convention was preparing to kickoff in Philadelphia on July 25, the long-standing efforts to unify the party after a fractious primary campaign season were upended with WikiLeaks' release of over 19,000 internal DNC emails. Those emails from seven key figures within the party document discussions that explored ways in which the DNC could undermine Bernie Sanders' campaign as he was fighting to overtake frontrunner Hillary Clinton. One email from the Democrat's chief financial officer, Brad Marshall, suggested that they use religion against a certain possible atheist with a Jewish heritage, presumably Senator Sanders.  Story continues

Christian Right Still Setting the Culture War Agenda for Republicans

MP3 Interview with Frederick Clarkson, senior fellow for religious liberty with Political Research Associates, conducted by Scott Harris

In one of the most contentious presidential primary campaigns in recent Republican party history, billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump emerged victorious out of a crowded field that began with 17 candidates. Despite the fact that Trump has rejected GOP orthodoxy on some issues such as free trade, Social Security privatization and support for NATO, the former reality TV star did attempt to please and retain the loyalty of one key element of the Republican party coalition, the Christian right. Trump's choice of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, a Christian conservative as his running mate was no accident.  Story continues

Grassroots Campaign Launched to End New Oil and Gas Drilling Leases in Gulf of Mexico

MP3 Interview with Anne Rolfes, founding director of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

drilling

In June, a coalition of grassroots environmental justice organizations on the Gulf Coast sent a letter to Big Green environmental groups and their funders, calling on them to be equal partners in the campaigns they're waging to clean up the air and water in their region, which is likely the area most heavily impacted by oil and gas drilling anywhere across the U.S. The coalition of groups say they want the help these big organizations can provide, but they want a relationship built on mutual respect – and they don't want to be used as "poster children" for environmental disasters that the national groups often exploit to raise money for their own projects.  Story continues
