January 12, 2016: Host of The World Meets America Report William Kern opened the program with a tribute to David Bowie featuring a rare version of Space Oddity from the 1969 film Love You Till Tuesday. Kern then gives an account of the journalism non-profit he founded Worldmeets.US and what it has done on behalf of the American people for over a decade. Kern then turns his attention to the clear and determined effort on the part of the mainstream media never to mention the source of Donald Trump’s charges against the Clintons: The book The Clinton’s War on Women by legendary Republican political operative Roger Stone. William Kern then turned to the subject of why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are so popular: the electorate wants a president who will get into office and, in Kern’s words, “break things.” Kern expressed the view that Americans know, “a vote for anyone else is a vote for the status quo – a status quo which was the nightmare of both President Eisenhower, who warned of the Military Industrial Complex, and legendary journalist Edward R Murrow, who resigned from CBS in 1958 because of the overweening influence of commercial interests over news media” (see below).

Then – a look at another recent media peccadillo too outrageous to ignore: comments on Morning Joe by Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations Richard Haass, that “commercial interests and arms sales” have nothing to do with America’s continuing support for regimes like the Saudi Monarchy, which serially violates human rights and stands against much of what America is supposed to stand for. Kern then engages in some predictions about the State of the Union tonight (boring, legacy-based, says Kern) and a final note on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump oppose.
