The program was heard on KPFA.
"The Morning Mix Project Censored - December 6, 2013 at 8:00am" was the morning show.

The interview starts around 30 minutes into the broadcast.

I am curious, what are your thoughts and opinions on what was said?

It's an interesting interview, the hosts are in no way what i would consider conservative. Yet, they seem to agree with Rall and that is the only reason i linked to the interview. Censorship isn't what i think happened, but it is how Rall sees the events that transpired.

I admit to not having followed this saga very closely but, since we are rational adults, should we hold an intervention with Rall? Talk it out...

Personally, i Don't like the way he draws the President, actually i don't like the way most cartoonists depict Obama.

What i vehemently disagree with, is that we are obamabots. We disagree with, and criticize some of his polices almost as much as we do with tea party positions.

i know what my knee jerk reaction to his drawing of president obama is, and i never would have written about the rall saga, but after hearing the interviewers POV i became interested in the story and i actually looked at the cartoons for the first time.

not talking about it, would serve no purpose. reflection and dialog are worthwhile endeavors.  

Look, i do believe that he is concerned about being labeled a racist. And the accusation has hit home. The question is, what does he do with that information. Some soul searching, a retreat and retrenchment, or a doubling down?

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.
