At root, love and value your content - please continue, so important and critical right now. Am searching for reason not to go slate plus...

Justice is blind but host only likes blue

I am very interested in the law but for a non-partisan, the host is terribly off-putting. The value of the occasional impressive guest is submerged by the flood of partisan accusations and demonizing “the other side”. It may be the only show about the workings of the justice system that only allows one side of any legal question to be heard and celebrates arbitrary opinions presented as facts without evidence.

Nothing new

Extremely liberal and misleading.Like all other democrats at the top they use your empathy against you and cherry pick data because their arguments dont make sense when you consider the facts and statistics in full
