Commentary with a Libertarian Perspective

No, this isn't news -- it's commentary. Anyone who expects this "audio magazine" to provide balanced reporting is missing the point; the objective here is to look at current events from a libertarian (rational individualist, free-market, limited government) perspective. I've listened to this program in the past, and it does provide an welcome alternative view to what you'll find in the pages of the New York Times or on NPR's airways.

Think Tank

Fed up with lack of objectivity at the New York Times, CNN, and Fox. Shoddy reporting has become all to common, leading to mini-scandals at major outlets. UPI stories purporting to be news, reading more like op-ed pieces. Heaven forbid somebody should actually think about, and analyze a topic. Cato has its own bias ... towards individual freedom (with the expected caveat ... not at the expense of others freedoms). Yes, it's an overly simplistic summary of a complex position, but this is a review, not a philosophical treatise. As expected, some of the articles will offend liberals, some will offend conservatives, and some will offend both. Most topics cut rather short. Definitely disagreed with some analysis ... but found it very interesting, nonetheless.
