Bill Lipinski and Ray Hanania have partnered to offer a unique podcast which will provide opinion, analysis and information on the news of the day.
Lipinski and Hanania have worked together as politician and journalist for more than 45 years, meeting at Chicago City Hall in 1977.
Lipinski was the Democratic Committeeman and Alderman representing the 23rd Ward, later serving in Congress from 1983 until 2005, and Hanania was a cub reporter with the Daily Southtown (Southtown Economist) Newspapers, later joining the Chicago Sun-Times in 1985.
Together, Lipinski and Hanania will offer their perspectives on issues in the news to help the public better understand the news and those issues.
As “Reagan Democrats,” the views of former Congressman Bill Lipinski and Ray Hanania represent a centrist perspective as “Reagan Democrats,” Democrats with a Conservative leaning. Reagan Democrats were obviously Democrats who supported then President Ronald Reagan who offered effective and commonsense policies as America’s 40th President from 1981 until 1989.
“We want to offer our perspectives and insight from many years of engaging and observing politics and government over the many years,” Lipinski said. “The Reagan Democratic perspective is a strong and popular perspective representing many Americans but often is not reflected in today’s coverage.”
Lipinski also authors the new column “Right from the Middle” which offers a Reagan Democratic perspective on topics regularly and published here at Suburban Chicagoland. To read Lipinski’s print columns visit www.AllAmericanEagles.com found on this website.
“I covered Bill Lipinski for many years and he was pragmatic, insightful and always objective and fair in his politics. He was well respected among the journalists who covered Chicago City Hall not as outsiders but as insiders who were assigned and worked out of City Hall for so many years,” Hanania said.
“I am proud to partner with him in this politics and journalism effort. We hope our opinions, which are based on years of frontline experience in politics and journalism and shared together, will give listeners an important perspective on events in the news today.”
