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.

Good show with weaknesses

When David Urban is on the panel, I turn the program off immediately. He is an advisor for Trump or the Trump campaign, which prohibits him from being objective. His tortured defenses of Trump are misleading and add absolutely nothing of value. Same for Rick Santorum. Jake Tapper is excellent.

Giving a platform to a white supremacist? No. Just no.
