Two radio stations (both in California) covered the Institute's Gulf Coast Reconstruction Watch project this week:

*** Mother Jones Radio did an excellent interview with the Institute's Sue Sturgis, author of our report "Storm Cloud Over New Orleans," about the lack of federal support for hurricane preparedness in the Big Easy. You can listen to the full interview here.

*** I just finished a spot on Your Call at KALW-FM in San Francisco, talking about the media's coverage of Katrina issues including the bogus story making headlines this week that Katrina victims are supposedly responsible for bilking "a billion and a half dollars" from U.S. taxpayers.

I was joined by Michael Kirk, producer of the Frontline special "The Dark Side," about Dick Cheney and White House politics in the "war on terror," which premiers June 20 (and looks fantastic).
