Season 2 - Great Unbiased Reporting

Thank you for this show!

One good one bad

Season one is fantastic. Tons of investigative material and in depth looks at what constituted Watergate. Really fascinating historical look back and journalism.

Season two the author admits his bias and love for Clinton but completely fails in every aspect that made season one so good. The authors clearly had no passion in exploring the Clinton scandal but were only interested in exonerating Clinton to the best of their ability. Again they admit this bias but admission does not excuse the total change in attitude. Clinton scandals are quickly mentioned and then brushed aside so the focus can be shone back on the evil prosecution.

Really sad they tarnished their integrity with season two. If they had no interest in really investigating Clinton why even bother? Pick a different scandal to actual delve into rather than throw out some smoke and mirrors puff piece.

Liberal bias

After comparing trump and his daughter to Nixon and Martha in you first season and all the talk about how there where so many similarity’s I wonder now in season 3 of you will correct since trumps investigation returned with no evidence of any wrong doing love the history of the podcast but leave out the bias
