Huge bulwark fan

Mona is such a thoughtful intellectual thinker. The entire bulwark team is top notch. Great guests and quite serious subjects. I really enjoy Mona when she appears on Thursday night bulwark livestream as well.

demographically insignificant ,

An oasis for thoughtful moderates willing to listen

This show is a godsend. If we come out of our National Emergency with our democratic institutions still intact, it will be because of efforts like Beg to Differ. I’m a huge fan of Mona Charen!
