About This Program
Join us on November 3 from 8 PM to 11 PM for WPKN’s Alternative Election Coverage hosted by Scott Harris, Richard Hill and the Public Affairs team. While the main-stream media counts and prognosticates, we’ll be having in-depth discussions on a full range of issues from racism, labor, voter suppression, health care policy, and post-election movement building with a roster of guests from around the country including Ralph Nader, Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin, Daniel Ellsberg, labor economist Michael Zweig, economist Dr. Jack Rasmus and many more.
We’ll also hear reports about turn-out, lines or problems at polling sites around Westchester County, on Long Island and in southern Connecticut.
We suggest you mute the volume on your favorite cable news station and pump up WPKN so you can keep your eye on the horse race while you focus on the real issues we will face in the coming months.
