First Take: Ford CEO, Gov. Pawlenty, Haiti Survivor's Tale

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

UPDATED: 8:23pm

Alex here (Senior Producer working the night shift) ... and your six word state of the union "speeches" are pouring in, so that should be fun tomorrow. Other than that, not much has changed since Anna's update around lunch time.

To mark the 65th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz we've recorded the story of an 84-year-old survivor now who's speaking out in response to Holocaust deniers; we'll play that for you tomorrow. 

And straddling the worlds of business and film, Avatar has surpassed Titanic as the highest grossing film of all time. internationally anyway. Is it just because tickets have gotten more expensive? Also interesting, Avatar's total ticket sales of $1.859 Billion are more than the GDP of these countries: Belize, Greenland, Guyana, Liberia, Cape Verde, Bhutan, Eritrea. 

But really, that's just a tiny part of tomorrow's big show, the rest is all laid out below.

Friday's Show

Thursday, January 21, 2010

PRI
WNYC

UPDATED AT 7:53 p.m.: Arwa Gunja here on the evening shift.

As Anna wrote about earlier, we're planning some heavy coverage on the Supreme Court decision that came down earlier today that allows unlimited corporate funding for campaign ads. We've booked former Rep. Chris Shays (R-Conn.), who is an interesting player in all this because he authored campaign finance legislation in the House of Representatives that would prevent the very thing the Supreme Court is now allowing.

We also got word a couple of hours ago that Air America, a liberal talk radio network, will cease broadcasting immediately. Brian Stelter, who covers media for our partner The New York Times, wrote a blog posting which has already incited interesting conversation. He'll be joining our show for an update tomorrow.

And we haven't forgotten Haiti. Ken Berger, the president and CEO of Charity Navigator, joins us tomrrow to answer some of the big questions Americans have been having about donating to Haiti. For example, how much should you donate, what's the best organization to give to, and when? Tune in for those answers tomorrow.
