This Week on Between The Lines

"(The Christian Right) is one of the most significant and powerful and potentially nation-changing political movements in the history of our country has far more political power than they could have imagined even two decades ago. So I don't think we're quite boiled frogs yet, but we're getting there."

– Frederick Clarkson, senior fellow with Political Research Associates

Since the 2010 midterm congressional election where the Republican Party won control of the U.S. House of Representatives as well as governors seats and state legislatures nationwide, politicians allied with the religious right have aggressively pushed an agenda to outlaw or limit access to abortion, reduce insurance support for contraceptives and pass laws prohibiting gay marriage.  Story continues

climate

In the wake of a one-of-a-kind hurricane merged with a nor'easter storm that smashed into the East Coast on Oct. 29, the issue of climate change is now front and center – at least among those who consider the strange and extreme weather the world has been experiencing the past year or two to be linked to climate change. What's happening is exactly what 98 percent of the world's climate scientists predicted would happen. It's just happening much sooner than many thought it would.  Story continues

Media Focus on Election Polls and Gaffes Crowd Out Substantive Coverage of Critical Issues

Interview with Eric Boehlert, a senior fellow with the group Media Matters for America, conducted by Scott Harris

media

Much of corporate media's coverage of this year's presidential election campaign has focused on the dozens of companies and universities that conduct almost daily public opinion polls. National television networks and newspapers produce dozens of stories each week devoted to often contradictory survey results of voter preferences that can vary widely day by day. The almost exclusive media attention paid to the horserace between the major party candidates has more in common with how media covers sporting events – and often crowds out substantive coverage of the major issues confronting the nation and policy positions advocated by the candidates.  Story continues
