Welcome to a very special Inaugural Edition of LibertyWeek with your hosts Richard Morrison and Cord Blomquist, and Special Guest Ivan Osorio. We get started with The Day in Wikipedia and the Tweet of the Week, and then we discuss the many celebratory balls that can be found around town to mark the beginning of the new presidency. Bank of America headlines the next segment with its request for an additional $20 billion in bailout money, and then we look into what could become the first real scandal of the 44th President’s (first) term. Eventually we find our way to On the Waterfront with Ivan Osorio, where our favorite Editorial Director and labor policy analyst fills us in on the questionable activities of the Service Employees International Union and its President, Andy Stern. Finally, we take inspiration from the annals of Olympic News.
P.S. – Watch the new video “Barack Obama and the Price of Change” here!
