An opportunity for a a great all inclusive platform

Many of us in the non hysterical, inquisitive “middle” really respect Jake and appreciate his thorough, articulate perspective and skilled refereeing. We’d also love a more balanced roster of guests and a balanced and comprehensive critique.

Stop inviting guests so that you can push a false equivalency! Do not invite (in an effort to appear fair and balanced) those guests who willfully and knowingly use your show to push falsehoods! They bring no value to the discourse.
