Ep. 166: Idiot Wind Rumble with Michael Moore

    • News Commentary

Between the stupid disaster occurring in Texas to the continuing stupid rampage of Covid-19 to the death of S. Rush Limbaugh, it's been a banner week for enforced ignorance and prideful stupidity in America. Michael Moore makes the connection between the unique strain of American idiocy, the never-ending addiction to the myths about the "free market" and privatization, and one of the loudest and most destructive voices in the country with his legacy of ignorance, hate, fear and violence he leaves behind. Finally, Michael reflects on the passing of Jim Ridgeway, an investigative journalist who left an indelible mark in journalism, on the left, and in Michael's life and career.
