One of my favorite shows

A consistently smart, probing, thoughtful dive into matters that matter. Always willing to take on their own role, and the role of media across the political spectrum. Love this show.

Becoming more partisan?

I sure hope not. I was surprised today when the host seemed to join the guest when she apologized for giving "the bad news" that POTUS won't be removed from office by impeachment. So OTM is now just another anti-Trump broadcast? I'm so bored with that trite ubiquitous bubble. I tune in for critical thinking and independent analysis, and don't need another Trumpcast in my feed.

Revisit Epstein

You all need to do another Epstein episode yesterday. Sans Alec Baldwin and instead with Whitney Webb, Liz Franczak or Brace Belden. Every second you sit on this is chance for another Project Veritas to beat you to the story and poison the well.
