So, she brought back Knight's lady friend and devoted this week's program to call-ins. This did not result in good radio, but it gave us a better look at Kathy Davis' intellectual shortcomings and intolerance. You see, as the calls came in, she began to small a rat: Alton Maddox. He was the disgraced, opportunistic attorney who, along with his sidekick—the then rotund Al Sharpton—sought the press recognition by participating in and shamelessly embellishing upon the Tawana Brawley I-wuz-assaulted hoax. Maddox lost his license to practice law and continued to seek publicity. One-time FBI informer Sharpton lost his mountainous figure and found a bigger spotlight than he could have dreamt of, one that all but gives him a key to Obama's Whitehouse.

Here is an hour's worth of that show. Yes, I know it's long, even after I removed the music, but it gives you a chance to hear her expound on her philosophy and become addled as she slowly begins to sense a caller conspiracy that pushes the Alton Agenda. Once again, free speech gets the old WBAI shove.
If you recall WBAI in its good days and know why Pacifica was founded, this simpleminded look at life will make you cringe even more.
