Zzzttttttn ,

Good but you will hear a lot of…

…”As the only person of color here, I must say …” or “as the only woman here I must say…” from Celeste. IMO, when you have to use that as a preface to a statement, your argument is very weak. Otherwise it would stand on its own merit. Celeste is also a very poor moderator who will control the discussion by saying things like “I’m not going to let this…”. Just like too many liberals, she knows what’s best and the rest get no say in the matter. Also, Josh was great - bring him back!

Kristal Knight is really a voice for the people.

I enjoyed both sides argument. But is more in tune with the communities.

Bias is Boring

Was a fan when the hosts were Batya and Josh. The current format seems to be a platform for new host, Celeste to editorialize standard ‘progressive’ platitudes. I will be unsubscribing.
