Gabriel Arana (The American Prospect, gabrielarana.com) and Ann Friedman (annfriedman.com, Tomorrow Magazine)

Guest-hosting on The Posner Show, Gabriel talks to Ann about Tomorrow Magazine, which is being produced by laid-off staffers from GOOD and funded via Kickstarter. Ann describes the editorial freedom that comes from not being beholden to advertisers or large donors. How can journalists make dry topics like campaign finance interesting? Are charts and graphs the answer? They next discuss Magic Mike, the strangely fascinating male stripper movie. Does the film objectify men in the way that Hollywood usually objectifies women?
