Air Date: December 29, 2011
Host: Jim Schneider
Jim opened the Crosstalk phone lines and gave listeners the opportunity to express what they believed to be the most significant news story of 2011 and why.
Was it the Arab Spring and the toppling of governments in the Middle East? How about the “occupy” movement in the U.S.? What about the rise of Islam in the U.S.? Maybe the deaths of world leaders? The faltering economy of the U.S. and our increasing debt? The repealing of the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy? The advancing lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender agenda? The natural disasters that have taken place? The death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs? The attempted murder of congresswoman Gabby Giffords?
See if your pick matches that of the many listeners who called in when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
