Assange addresses UN General Assembly

Published on Sep 26, 2012 by RTAmerica

On Wednesday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange plans to address the United Nations General Assembly in New York City from his make-shift prison in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London where he has been trapped for several months. Assange hopes to bring attention to his case and believes he can help strengthen human rights across the globe; this after the UK has threatened to extradite him to Sweden where he faces sexual assault charges. Kevin Gosztola, a blogger with FireDogLake.com, joins to explain what we can expect from the whistleblower.

Upward Mobility In America Now

Upward Mobility In America Now
Stuck in America. Upward mobility—the American Dream—is at an all time low. We look at what’s happened to the ladder.
New census report out this month on Americans and money. The income gap grows again. The big majority of Americans see no gains in a pale recovery. Median household income, down 8 percent from 2007. Middle class, falling. The poor, going nowhere.
Only the well-to-do on the rise. Economic mobility – “movin’ on up” – is at the heart of the American narrative. Now, a lot of Americans are going nowhere, or down. Who is moving? And who’s not? And what will it take the move the country again?
This hour, On Point: going somewhere, going nowhere, in America.
