Today’s show will cover a lot of territory…

We’ll speak with FreePress.net‘s Tim Karr… A lot of listeners have asked about ACTA and its supposed role as the more evil step-sister of SOPA/PIPA.  So, I asked Tim to join us to tell us about it, as he’s my arbiter of all things internet.  He’ll give us what little he knows about it, as ACTA is NOT US legislation…

The NY Times had a good piece on ACTA on Sunday, “A New Question of Internet Freedom”.

What Tim has been working on lately is a study on the effects of the SCOTUS Citizens United  ruling.  The result is Citizens Inundated:How big-money politics and broadcast media are poisoning democratic discourse and undermining U.S. elections … and what we can do about it.

For a quicker read, check out Tim’s OpEd in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

This afternoon (actually 10am PT), the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will rule on California’s Prop 8.  Adam Bink is Director of Online Programs for Courage Campaign, and has been blogging about Prop 8 at Prop8TrialTracker.com. He’ll  give us all the background on the case… and will hopefully join us tomorrow morning too to give us the post mortem on the ruling!

And, as we do every Tuesday morning, I’ll spend the second hour with The Political Carnival‘s GottaLaff.  Today, she brings us these stories and more:

VIDEO- Ron Paul: “If it’s an honest rape,” go to the emergency room, get “a shot of estrogen.”

Video- Michelle Bachmann: ‘I was the perfect candidate’

Clint Eastwood: ‘I am Certainly Not Affiliated with Mr. Obama’

Reporter banned from Nevada caucus: “Spy! She’s a spy!”

Random amusing GOP Nevada moments

Newt Gingrich press secretary: “I am already tired of you, I need to take a nap.”

Mitt Romney does it again: Rapper K’Naan seeking legal action against him for using his song

In the middle of the show, the news broke that Karen Handel had resigned from Susan G. Komen… read the story and her resignation letter here.
