The nationally-syndicated one hour daily public radio program “Background Briefing” with Ian Masters offers an alternative media platform in a media landscape dominated by monopolies and oligopolies following the loss of net neutrality in what could be the last frontier of non-commercial non-corporate media left in the country.
Instead of the interviewer as the anchor or media personality, the guests are the “stars” and the goal is to extract the most insightful and salient information while allowing the facts to speak for themselves and the objective truth to follow its own non-ideological course.
“Background Briefing” focuses on national security in the broadest sense going beyond defense and intelligence to encompass the soft power of cultural influence, economic strength and social justice covering everything from healthcare to human rights, the environment to enterprise, sociology to science, the law to labor, immigration to innovation, race to religion, economics to education, transportation to technology
