Newsletter : 9 July 2009

Dear Listener,

Thanks for being a member of The Thom Hartmann Program. There are some exciting new developments on the program. We'll have a new daily newsletter launching early next week. Throughout the week you'll receive "The Daily Stack" with all the links to stories I cover daily, upcoming station visits & events, a weekly blog, a weekly article, and you'll also get a peek at my mail with a response or rebuttal...and more. You can now listen to my daily newscast, but you won't hear the stories you normally hear on the corporate media - you'll hear The Best of the Rest of the News - you can hear it on the stream at or as an extra if you sign up for podcasts. In our news today you'll discover with billions being funded in the "Cap & Trade" proposal why is it that only 1% is allocated to public transportation when transportation represents 1/3 of all emissions? Learn why the Center for Biological Diversity maybe suing the Environmental Protection Agency about Polar Bears and why this is important to you and me. My new book, Threshold: The Crisis of Western Civilization , is arriving in book stores in a few weeks (and on amazon and B&N now). I'll be traveling the U.S. doing talks and signings so drop by and say Hi! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Always remember activism begins with you - Tag! You're it.

Warm Regards,

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
