Because Americans receive so much of their news on TV, the NRLN has launched a 2020 video series that is posted on the NRLN website at www.nrln.org and on www.Facebook.com/nrln1. I’m the NRLN on-camera person, at least for the initial series of videos. (View the image from beginning of video.)
Probably most of our members remember Walter Cronkite, the CBS Evening News anchorman from 1962-1981. Don’t expect that smooth delivery from me. Since the NRLN is frugal with our member’s contribution dollars, in my garage I painted a blue screen background for the projected images, but that didn’t work so I had to buy a regulation size green screen and lighting, and used my son’s camera for the video.
The first video is ready for you to view. If you care to make comments or have questions, click
firstname.lastname@example.org. I talk about the purpose of the NRLN, provide information that is available on our website and discuss and show the website’s primary navigation icons, such as signing up to receive NRLN emails and responding to our Action Alerts.
Near the end of the video, I provide a look ahead on what will be coming in our video series. Next will be a four-part provocative series on the privatization of Medicare. After that, we will tackle Prescription Drug pricing, Social Security and other subjects.
I close the video by talking about the American Retirees Education Foundation, the NRLN’s research and education partner.
We encourage feedback and comments. In fact, we will soon unveil a podcast where we hope to discuss new information and dialogue about member concerns and answer questions involving retiree benefits and the need for better representation and effective legislation from our elected members of congress and the executive branch.
Please “tune in”.
Bill Kadereit, President
National Retiree Legislative Network
