July 28, 2014 – Critical Conversations works beyond the headline, removes the agenda and talks about what today’s news really means.
Join us for a special edition of the CommDigiNews Hour show Critical Conversations, this week presenting a discussion with Editor in Chief Lisa Ruth talking to Senior Political Editor Jim Picht about some of the most critical issues of the day.
Ruth, who is also a former CIA officer and an expert on international relations, and Picht, a PhD economist and professor at Louisiana Honors College with extensive experience in international affairs and an expert on Russia will be discussing the crash of MH17 and what it means. They will deconstruct the talk and discuss not just who shot the missile, but how did they learn to target, fire and bring down a plane. What are Russia’s responsibilities in this tragedy?
Should Ukraine airtraffic control be held accountable? Or Putin for not brokering peace in this area? They will also take a hard look at what is driving the immigration flood and some creative options for stemming the tide. Ruth, who is an expert on South and Central America will talk about how America can really have an effect on the lives of the people fleeing to America’s borders.
They will also examine this week’s top stories the allegations of Harry Reid’s involvement in the Utah bribery case and new revelations that GOP legislators worked against Tea Party candidate McDaniels in Mississippi. They will also discuss this week’s statements by Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen on the economy, and explain what it means to America’s taxpayers.
