On this special edition of Counterpoint PA, I present footage I took of the October 29 “Believe in ESU” protest against education cuts at East Stroudsburg University right in my hometown. In this special “Believe in ESU” edition of the show’s homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week, first I show the speech of a local Democratic state representative candidate who informed the crowd that their local Republican state representatives voted for the education cuts, followed by the speeches of spokespeople of said local Republican state representatives who claimed to champion education funding but carefully avoided countering the Democrat’s claims. Then there’s a short interview I did with another Democratic state representative candidate who was there about the discrepancy between the Republicans’ words and actions, and I end with some of my own commentary.
