2. I like Thom. By why the hell Russia Today? They are horrible.

It does not give Hartmann much credibility, no matter how much people like him. And I do... Mostly.

But RT loves some wacko conspiracy theories and fringe Bloggers. Not so sure how objective they are. I do not think that are, too much.

5. You should be aware that

Thom licenses the show to RT to run the show on their channel. Most importantly, they have zero editorial power, (and as another commenter points outs this program actually airs on free speech tv).

Over the next few years, more community TV stations and cable systems picked it up, and Hartmann moved to Washington, DC, taking both his radio show and The Big Picture with him. With that move, he expanded the show to an hour, and also licensed the show to RT, partially in exchange for use of their television studios and facilities. While the show carries the RT bug, it is entirely owned by Hartmann's company, which has contractual editorial control over the program. The editorial staff of the show are employees of Hartmann's company, while the TV production staff work for RT.

4. Couldn't agree more... and this is why I can't support Hillary.

No Democratic substance.
