THE SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE, as host Patrick Henningsen returns this week with another very special show, covering the top news stories and events internationally. In the first hour we’ll look at the latest fictional narratives coming out of the Beltway, the Oregon Stand-off, the GOP theatre of debate and other wild media creations. In the second hour we’re joined by special guest, Middle East commentator, writer and analyst, Sharmine Narwani, to discuss diplomatic and political shifts taking place between the West, its GCC partners, Israel and Syria, as well as the latest on the recent US Naval incident in Iranian waters. In the third hour we’re joined by UK-based radio host and broadcast journalist, Richie Allen, to talk about his new show on ACR, the passing of David Bowie, as well as a review of the state of the 4th Estate and the audacious age of media manipulation.
Strap yourselves in and lower the blast shield - this is your brave new world...
