Conn Hallinan and getting behind the myths of the destruction of the Gaddafi regime in the first half.
And; last January, legendary journalist and author, John Ross died in Mexico. Ross had reported with a rare ferocity injustice wherever he found it, never relenting. And, he had the scars to prove it. I had John on the show a couple of times over the last years, and in the second half will pay him his overdue dues. John Ross, rebel to the roots in the second half.
And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us news from the city’s streets and beyond. But first, Conn Hallinan and a Libyan regime change rejoinder.
