We're in Denver, offering progressive coverage of the Democratic Convention. It's crazy here, but great to see politically active people from all over the country. Interesting to see some of the corporate sponsors--A T & T was complicit in the Bush illegal eavesdropping, and are celebrating the FISA cave-in with a big party here Monday--will it have a theme of "retroactive immunity"? Also visible here is the Denver-based telecom, Quest, the company that resisted the wiretap requests that started months before 9/11.

Our coverage has no corporate sponsors

Please spread the word
