Tonight's live episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) includes a couple of segments on Veterans Day. Iraq War vet and former Marine Dan Caldwell of Concerned Veterans for America will react to a Salon.com piece by David Masciotra with the headline: "You don't protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy." And Kmele Foster will show a clip from the great documentary he produced along with ex-Reasoner Dan Hayes, Honor Flight. Here's the 2009 Reason TV video that got that project started:
Party Panelists Ellis Henican (Newsday columnist) and Sherrod Small (comedian) will deconstruct the body language and fashion choices of Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin at their APEC non-summit; assess the late-breaking volley of criticism against Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett; vote whether sex will soon be 100% non-procreative, and examine the case of a Virginia Tech Young Americans for Freedom chapter that got its funding pulled after hosting an anti-immigration lecture by Bay Buchanan.
Did you know America is now Ebola-free, at least as far as we know? We'll talk about that. And there'll be an interview with the great free speech champion Flemming Rose, culture editor of Jyllands-Posten (think: Mohammed cartoons), who will talk about his new book, The Tyranny of Silence.
