    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan will welcome guests to analyze the midterm primaries already underway. What do the results so far portend? How are the Democrats and the Republicans planning and working for victory?

    Why do official Democratic Party leadership and governance bodies-the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), and the state parties-appear to be more concerned with defeating progressive Democrats in the primaries than replacing Republicans in November elections?

    Fault Lines hosts and guests will also discuss how mainstream media including new media hegemons-like Google, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc.-try to suppress independent media.

    Hosts and guests will also examine the barriers independent and third party candidates face as they try to get on the ballot and get the voters' attention, as well as other trending issues in the "Divided States of America."
