Happy Friday, and get ready for today's edition of Daily Kos Radio, live from 9-11 a.m. ET. We'll be joined as usual by Greg Dworkin (DemFromCT) for a polling roundup, plus we'll welcome Steve Singiser for his first appearance on the show. In between, we'll flip through the news, the Twitter buzz, and maybe sneak in some Independence Day political philosophizing, because it's Friday.

We're going forward despite the terrible news that the Netroots Radio studios were burglarized yesterday. I guess that's the value of distributed networks, eh? The show can go on.

Did you miss yesterday's show? If so, you can check out the podcast, posted here. Or start with an assortment of bite-sized samplers in the "highlights" post, here.

Next week, Congress returns to DC, which will give us some more to talk about. But even better, we'll hear Armando and Jesse LaGreca (Ministry of Truth) chiming in to extend our programming in the 11 a.m. to noon hour, Eastern time. Big changes are coming to Daily Kos Radio, by which I mean small changes that I will inflate the importance of, including a switch in podcast players that'll address the concerns some of you have raised about how we serve those up. What can I say? Small things excite me in this adventure we're having.

Find us here, or by clicking the player below. And if you miss the show, or just love it so much you want to hear it again and again, be sure to check in at the Daily Kos Radio group page for podcasts, highlights, etc.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Why do the jobs report have seemingly so little impact on the overall dynamic of the presidential race?

    One reason is that not everyone is refreshing the Bureau of Labor Statistics page. Gallup found just 22 percent followed news about June's unemployment report “very closely” in a survey  conducted three days after it was released. Only 55 percent followed it even “somewhat closely,” which is below the 60 percent average across 200 other news stories Gallup has tracked in the past two decades.

    Second, not everyone interprets the report in the same way, and many partisan see their own “facts” in the jobs numbers. Fully 57 percent of Republicans described the May jobs report as “negative,” but only 45 percent of independents and 28 percent of Democrats said the same. Democrats were much more likely to say the news was “mixed”, though 15 percent described the reading as positive. Notably, respondents who followed news about the report closely were 20 points more likely to see it as negative.
