Good morning everybody, who’s got the croissants? Join us this afternoon for Rick Perlstein with Kimberly K. Phillips-Fein, and his book The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan.

The disaster in Ferguson, Missouri headlines all the Sunday shows as well it should.

¡Buenos Dias!

Jane Hamsher and Kevin Gosztola are at the Hope X Conference in NYC this weekend. Here’s today’s schedule, there are video and audio feeds to follow along, and also the twitter.

As for the Sunday shows, Secretary of State John Kerry does the Full Ginsburg this week, he’s everywhere.

THE big topic is the shootdown of Flight MH17, and some coverage of Gaza, plus a touch of the refugee children massing at the border ready to rid America of her freedoms. Cecile Richards is on with Bill Moyers, and Susie Madrak’s with Jay Ackroyd on Virtually Speaking. See you later this afternoon for FDL’s Book Salon, Strike Back: Using the Militant Tactics of Labor’s Past to Reignite Public Sector Unionism Today.

Good morning.

Movie Night Monday is all about the beer.

The Sunday talk fests focus on Iraq and ISIS as well as immigration reform or lack thereof. Except for coverage on Religion & Ethics there doesn’t appear to be any quests scheduled to discuss the Supreme Court cases decided this week, like Burwell v. Hobby Lobby or even the union decision of Harris v. Quinn.

C-SPAN’s Washington Journal trots out one more climate denier, more wasted air time spent “debating” that which there is no debate about.

After what will surely be an unremarkable discussion of war fighting with Senators Graham and McCain, Bob Schieffer is hosting an interesting roundtable of authors, if you’re looking for summer reads.

Who needs more coffee?

It’s morningtime! Get up and smell the coffee — and the roses.

FDL’s Book Salon will be Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century, but without Thomas Piketty – this time. Masaccio and Knut team up for the discussion. And Movie Night Monday will be the New Orleans-based Getting Back to Abnormal.

Peterr wonders why the Sunday morning bookers couldn’t get any of these people on to discuss missing administration emails…

Good morning everyone.

When dakine01 saw the listings last night, he replied:

“Day-uhm! The competition is fierce what with The Clinton Guy Shocked by Blowjobs having a wake for Eric Cantor, Senator Huckleberry J Butchmeup doing a two-faced dance with CBS and CNN, Faux Noise being its norm but Disco Dave’s Dance Party must really be trying to make up for having reasonable shows the past few weeks with that lineup of halfwits and full twits.”

Can’t argue with that. But do join Kevin Kosztola with Clark Stoeckley this afternoon for Book Salon to talk about Stoeckley’s visual reporting from the Chelsea Manning trial. His distinct courtroom drawings helped bring the trial outside the courtroom. And Monday evening Lisa Derrick brings Dave Tourjé in to talk about his art and the film L.A. Aboriginal.
