Do you believe what you see and hear on television, radio and the Internet? How do you get your news? Media Myths: From Global Warming and the Swine Flu, to Iranian Democracy and the “De Facto” Honduran Government, it’s time to talk about media myths that become the basis of dinnertime arguments at the lake.
One of my favorite podcasts. The Dillinger gang regularly hit the highway, driving from Chicago to Saint Paul, in one night. I wondered. Is that true? Could it be done? So I set out with a map to head off to Chicago from Western Wisconsin, using the old national highway system (pre expressways), and I really enjoyed myself. That weekend was the 75th anniversary of the killing of John Dillinger in Chicago. Come with me as I travel the rural routes of Wisconsin, just like the desperadoes of old, in the middle of the night, from Saint Paul to Chicago.
