Russ Baker’s Media Appearances

This Week on TV, Radio & Online Starting Tonight!

Help Us Spread The Word!

Family of Secrets has been out for a while, but, due in good part to the corporate-owned media’s reluctance to air deep investigative journalism that takes on the powerful, it’s still one of America’s best kept secrets.  That’s starting to change, and Russ is in demand now more than ever.

This week, Russ is providing intriguing context on a confluence of anniversaries and events currently taking place:  the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s inauguration, the 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s famed speech warning about the military industrial complex, the 10th anniversary of George W. Bush’s inauguration, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day observation, the Arizona shootings, and more.  Russ talks about Family of Secrets, and about our new nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative reporting news site, www.whowhatwhy.com
