Today On The Signorile Show!

3:40pm ET - On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that the consumer tech giant Apple is planning to launch a web-based TV service this fall, with a small package of roughly 25 channels.  Joining us today to discuss what this will mean in terms of competition for cable and satellite companies is Tim Stenovec who writes about technology for The Huffington Post.  You can also follow Tim on twitter.

4:35pm ET - In his new book The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot, Blaine Harden the former East Asia bureau chief for The Washington Post tells the story of how on the morning of September 21, 1953, North Korean fighter pilot No Kum Sok climbed into the cockpit of his Russian made MiG-15 and defied the Great Leader Kim Il Sung and defected to the United States.  Based on recently disclosed military documents and No’s eyewitness testimony the book tells riveting story of how Kim Il Sung seized power and plunged his country into war with the US while the youngest pilot in his air force was playing a high stakes game of deception and escape.  Blaine joins us today in studio to discuss his book.  You can also follow Blaine on twitter.
