Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: She Reads the Bills That Congress Doesn’t!!

Peter B. Collins Presents Podcaster Jennifer Briney

We know that members of Congress often don’t read the bills they vote for, with disastrous consequences like the Patriot Act. Jen Briney hosts the podcast Congressional Dish, and shares the actual content of legislation with her listeners. Her fact-finding is augmented by appropriate skepticism and the jaundiced eye of an observer of corruption in Washington. In particular, we discuss her observations on the recently-passed USA Freedom Act, which is sold as major “reform” of domestic surveillance but led former NSA boss Michael Hayden to brag that spying has not been curtailed since the Snowden disclosures.

*Jennifer Briney is researcher and host of podcasts at CongressionalDish.com.

    • I wish I could listen to this episode, something strange happened on paypal (Sibel suspending payments(?? why).

      I made a new payment yesterday and am now in kind of a lull where contacting using the contact form never has helped me. All I know is that for some reason, when I want to pay by paypal for my BFP name and pass, this time I did not get an email, and for some reason I cannot use linked credit cards on paypal to pay, I have to use my bank account, and doing so only allows me to do so as an echeque.I don’t regret switching to a credit union, but I don’t who’s in the wrong here, And if Sibel is waiting for the echeque to clear….in canada paypal doesn’t by 3 to 5 open days, but from 6 to 8 business days. I don’t know what’s happening and I really want to listen to this podcast so I am putting it straight on the website, maybe the admins will tell me what is going on then.

      • Problem fixed 😉

        Thanks a lot. I enjoyed the discussion here, she’s mighty brave, having to read through all the legalese that might even not make sense at times.

  2. I add this…
    Juli,it is in Danish..
    Happy 4th of July.
    To All Of Us.
    Stand Your Ground.
    I am whit You.
    Make Us Dream Again.
    Best Regards

    I think independent journalism is a great thing. Like Jen, I think it’s better to vote than not to vote.
