Both Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny are trailblazers when it comes to independent media. Week-to-week, with their “Citizen Radio” show, they combine sharp wit with thought-provoking commentary. The book is an opportunity to introduce the show to people who may have never heard of them or haven’t listened to them yet.

“#Newsfail is not your grandmother’s comedic-memoir-slash-political-manifesto. From page one (in a preface titled, “In Which the Authors Interview Ralph Nader in the Bathtub”), comedian Jamie Kilstein and journalist Allison Kilkenny pledge to give you the news like you’ve never gotten it before.”

In Oakland’s Frank Ogawa Plaza (renamed Oscar Grant Park by the occupiers), the folks at Occupy Oakland were attacked by Oakland police about 4 am this morning. The police surrounded the camp with vans, hummers and riot cops, declared the camp an “unlawful assembly” and proceeded to use smoke bombs to force the camp to disperse. Downtown Oakland was sealed off with Oakland City Center reportedly shut down to prevent people from coming down to protest the eviction.
