The ultimate podcast
This is the best thing on the whole Internet
Partisan hack podcast. Complete trash.
Parsing through all the lies and nonsense while working in public policy is a tough job and we do not need unethical trash like this adding to the noise. This podcasts is almost entirely devoid of facts, chock full of misinformation and empty rhetoric, and add nothing useful to the public policy arena other than trying to sway minds for partisan political outcomes. In the most recent episode concerning whether Hillary Clinton broke the law they simply made a reference to the Espionage act and said they think she broke it. No details. No actual discussion of what the act actually says. No legal evaluation of the elements of the act she violated. Nothing. Just said she broke the espionage act and then went on a tirade about how she will never be prosecuted under the President because the party won’t allow it. Political hacks and amateurs. These kind of unethical dirtbags and partisan propagandists make me sick.
