Liberal media at its very worst!

Very biased liberal views unashamedly rammed down listeners throats with no sign of any balance or guests with views that differ to the hosts views. The show is obsessed with Covid 19 and pedals FEAR and panic at every opportunity. Terrible content, insufferable host and bland guests! 👎
