      I was able to read the whole article.

      To every millionaire who decries they don't want their grandchildren paying for the deficit, I say: PAY MORE TAXES NOW and your grandkids won't have a deficit burden.

        I assumed it was just an error, thanks for fixing, but just FYI when I clicked the one in the diary it still did not work... not the video page anymore, but a not found message. This one works, though, so it might have just been a glitch. Thanks!

        Oh, I'm reading the article now and came across this part:

        He also reveals in our conversations that he has recruited as his primary substitute anchor David Shuster -- who last year was suspended from MSNBC when it came out that he had taped a pilot at rival CNN.

        I was wondering where David Shuster was going to be on this network... Keith's primary substitute. That's cool, he was always good when he sat in on the old show. Darn I am really getting sad that I don't have cable now. First time I've actually missed it since we pulled the plug.

      •  Can you post that (1+ / 0-)

        Hartmann video link.  I tried Search a few times and couldn't find the comment with the link you mentioned.  Tom Hartmann is fantastic.

          we really agree on Hartmann, Puddytat!  I consider him the female version of Rachel, although with a different style, of course.  The man is brilliant, and loaded for bear with the facts.  Have learned so much from him.

          Up here I can get him on Progressive AM radio 950 every afternoon from 2 to 5.  I often drive home from downtown a long our beautiful river road and listen---sometimes I go past my exit home on purpose to hear more.

          Does your city have any progressive radio?  Probably not, it's so rare.  But I know Hartmann streams a lot of his programs, check out his site.  Wish Olbermann would scoop him up too!

          •  No progressive radio here (0+ / 0-)

            I stream his show live on the puter.  Streaming is the only way I get progressive radio in one of the largest cities in America (Milwaukee).  

            Unfortunately, I can hear Rust Lintball and the other lineup of goons on at least 4 stations here.

            I was interested in the link for the video mentioned in the comment I was replying to.

      I hope Vyan will update the diary with the correct link.

      And maybe put a warning in the headline about the autoplay video? ... I would have turned my speakers off before opening the diary.

      Glad to find the story though. Interesting background.

      Unfortunately, we don't have cable TV anymore, so I won't be able to watch the new show except whatever bits they decide to make available online.

      I hope they find a way to offer full access for those of us who don't have TV. I would be happy to pay a reasonable monthly fee to directly subscribe to Current TV for full online access to their content.

      But I won't be paying for a cable or satellite tv again; too much crap, not enough worthwhile shows, and too expensive for our budget now.
