Considering how surrounded we are by lies, we ought to be experts in telling fact from fiction: but are we? The Disinformation movie Click the image or link below to watch the movie.

Washington Journal OPEN TRANSCRIPTS. Frequently Asked Questions Why does C-SPAN take audience calls? The call-in program - and our philosophy of focusing on the caller -- has been a fixture of the C-SPAN networks since the network's founding; it's so fundamental to us, it's incorporated into our company mission statement. Through the call-in program, C-SPAN encourages viewer interactivity by enabling viewers and listeners to talk directly to elected officials, policymakers, and journalists covering the national policy debate. C-SPAN frequently incorporates viewer call-ins into its programming schedule, both in regularly scheduled call-ins and open-phones programs that allow people to react to breaking news events.

When was C-SPAN's first viewer call? On October 7, 1980, just 18 months into its history, C-SPAN inaugurated television's first-ever, regularly scheduled national viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., following a speech by then- FCC Chair Charles Ferris.

If some state legislators get their way, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy could bring an end to one Jersey Shore tradition — the beach badge. State Sen. Michael Doherty, R-Hunterdon, Warren, and Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Salem, Gloucester, Cumberland, have introduced legislation requiring any town that accepts state or federal aid for rebuilding its beaches to provide beach and restroom access for free. “A beach fee is another word for tax,” Sweeney said Monday. “I just don’t agree with it. ... You’re taking federal money (and) tax dollars to build beaches. You shouldn’t charge me to go on a beach I already paid for.

It’s like charging a fee to breathe air.” In addition, those towns would be required to provide free public restrooms to beachgoers between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Sweeney said he hopes the bill will be part of a package of Sandy-related legislation expected to go to a vote in January. Local mayors, meanwhile, have mixed feelings about the proposed legislation.
