United Auto Workers begin United Broadcasting Network (UBN) to create a broadcast outlet focusing on unions and the lives of workers. Amy Goodman speaks to UBN founder Pat Choate and on-air personality Jim Hightower.

The network plans to be commercial-free and raise revenue by selling USA Products.

Goodman also speaks to Chip Berlet about controversial radio talk show host Chuck Harder, who Berlet believes makes xenophobic, anti-semantic, and homophobic comments.
