The Bottom Line: A Fond Farewell
A note to our listeners in this final edition of the Face the Nation Diary.
The Bottom Line: Try Saying Fire and Fury Three Times Fast
It was the week of Fire and Fury. That was the name of an explosive new book by Michael Wolff or it was a book about the reality of American politics we've been experiencing for the last year? Fire and Fury was fortunately not the title of taunts about North Korea this week. The rhetoric was hot, but for the first time in a while, we saw cooling.
The Bottom Line: Republicans Deliver Big Tax Cuts in Time for Christmas
It's a win for the president. 2017 ends with that elusive legislative victory for the president and his party. Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson on the week in review.
The Bottom Line: Democrats Win in Deep Red Alabama and Republicans Get a Tax Break
Democrat Doug Jones inches past controversial Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special election while Republicans in D.C. rally around a tax bill. Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson on the week in review.
The Bottom Line: Moore Now than Ever
The president and Republican National Committee embrace Roy Moore, the Democrats pressure Al Franken and John Conyers to resign. Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson on the week in review.
The Bottom Line: Flynn Flips and Tax Cuts Advance
Tax cuts are coming and men are leaving-- their media, Hollywood and corporate suites-- men who have sexually assaulted women are losing their jobs. Also, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn enters a guilty plea for lying to the FBI. Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson on the week in review.
The review that John Dickerson has done has been fantastic.. I rarely hear anyone do political reviews in such an objective, concise way with a bit of humor sprinkled in.
I have to say that I will miss you.
Thank you for being so excellent at your job
Good bye John
I loved the Face the Nation Diary. You will be missed John, but we will hear you on the Political Gabfest and see you in the AM on CBS.
So sad this is ending
This podcast was the highlight of the week for me. The 24 hour news cycle is a rollercoaster and having this weekly news roundup and summary with John’s presentation was great.
