The Alyona Show: Morning Prayer in the Capital
Today Alyona is joined by Robert Boston, senior policy analyst for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, to discuss the controversial American political group, "The Family." RT Correspondent Marina Portnaya joins Alyona from New York City to review the case of Dr. Aafia Sidiiqui. She has just been convicted of trying to kill Americans while detained in Afghanistan back in 2008. While dubbed "Lady Al-Qaeda" by many, her supporters say the accusations are false and she has been set up by the US government.
Later, Braden Cox of the Competitive Enterprise Institute sits down in studio with Alyona to discuss the future of the Internet. Will countries turn to an internal network of information in order to control what does and does not appear on the web? Or will the international community have access to one free and open information source? Then, Michelle Selesky from the Young Conservatives Coalition, Katherine Mangu-Ward from Reason Magazine and Democratic Strategist Walter Ludwig debate the outreach strategies of the two main political parties in Washington. Are Democrats or Republicans better at communicating their ideas to the public? Which party is more effective in countering the others' policy goals? Find out when the political figures square off.
