Alan Watt makes the MSM, again, this time for hosting his show on RBN. Also, a prediction: By 2011, the federal government will confirm that it is directly investigating RBN, or another underground radio network. — MB

John Stadtmiller’s Republic Broadcasting Network is taking heat in the Christian Science Monitor, for broadcasting a show hosted by the head of the Guardians of the Free Republics.
Stadtmiller, a competent broadcaster, appears to be getting out in front of this week’s story, about the Guardians’ apparently clumsy attempt to get dozens of US governors to step-down. (The word “investigation” alone is enough to make a broadcaster’s heart skip a beat.)
RBN also broadcasts Alan Watt’s Cutting Through the Matrix. The weeknight show features excellent insights — often on science and technology news stories — from Watt, one of the underground’s best-known conspiracy historians. (Watt’s commentary has informed my MSM reporting on RFID technologies, for example.)
But the network also airs a show by one, rabid anti-Semite, along with other voices that might not otherwise find a significant audience. And it runs ads from Holocaust-denying publishers:
“Republican Broadcasting Network is a satellite, shortwave, and Internet radio station that features 31 shows with names like ‘Cutting Through the Matrix, ‘Govern America,’ and ‘Road Warrior Radio.’ It has loose ties to the American Free Press newspaper, which Michael calls “the most important newspaper of the radical right.’”
Watt receives no money from RBN for his show, which is supported by direct book sales and donations to his website.
