John Hockenberry, Live in London

Monday, March 12, 2012

It's musical chairs for The Takeaway this week, as John Hockenberry guest-hosts the BBC's World Update program in London, while World Update host Dan Damon joins The Takeaway. Here, John shares some thoughts from across the pond:

It’s starting to feel a little late in the day around here. The afternoons are getting longer and there is not much time left to make the magic happen. You might say that London is a city dressing up for a hot date, an all-out go-for-broke global celebration. This is a wear the pearls and the gold necklace moment.

Video Club: Are Secret Committees as Good as they Sound on The West Wing?

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Sometimes political truth is stranger than political fiction, but the fiction is always more fun.

For that reason, It's A Free Country brings you Video Club with Brian Lehrer, in which our veteran analysts looks at the fun-house mirrors of our government's (in)action: television and the silver screen. What did the writers get right, and where did they flop? Why were the fictional characters more sympathetic, or more detestable? How did the political theater play out in real life? More often than not, it's the reality that looks funny.

John Hockenberry Decides to Come to the ADA Party

Monday, July 26, 2010

John Hockenberry interviews David Petraeus

"As a man who has spent well over half of his life in a wheelchair with a permanent spinal cord injury, I can say that my feelings about this landmark law have generally been negative" writes Takeaway host John Hockenberry in that program's blog. But on the 20th anniversary of the measure designed to make transit, public accommodations, and buildings more accessible, Hockenberry decides to come to the celebration anyway.

"So call me a grump. Call me late to the party. I have to say that after 2 decades, it’s 'Happy Birthday, ADA,' from this beneficiary. There’s a long way to go, but in my rear view mirror I can see how far we’ve come.
