Progressive Point of View has been discontinued


At the beginning of 2003, with George W. Bush and Dick Cheney dragging the country toward the abyss of the Iraq War, the editor of The Progressive magazine, Matthew Rothschild, felt an urgent need to reach as many people as possible about the threat this war posed. So began "Progressive Point of View," Rothschild’s brief audio commentaries, Monday-Friday, which run approximately 90 seconds.
