Politics Down the Middle

Fairly balanced as far as those things go. I would say center right if pressed.

Right Wing Hacks

Need someone stronger to balance Tom’s Pro Trump Bull.

Both sides now

Useful summary of right-wing talking points. MAGA champ Tom Bevans chats with Carl Cannon, who provides nimble commentary, if not any counterpoint. Cannon might safely share a fond memory of Earth Day, but will quickly dismiss discussion of Kremlin propaganda mouthed by Congressional Republicans. Leaves me perplexed by the podcast’s .”pencil behind the ear” direct talk premise. Andrew Walworth, with a beautiful voice and likely a straight face, suggests we read the RCP site. To get both sides, don’t you know!
