Great Show

Great show that covers both size of a story. Painful to listen to people like Jim Jordan and the bs he passes for facts but necessary to get the complete perspective of a story and not listening to people that believe like you.

Major is a part of gaslighting

I think Major is a wonderful interviewer for the most part. Save for the fact that he allows right wing politicians to spout false propaganda as fact without challenge. He accepts their false statements as truth and without any pushback. One liar after another Jim Jordan, Scalise ( who should not have been saved by a black lesbian cop, whose rights he wouldn’t stand up for, and in fact, actively campaigns against), Crenshaw (the lyingest pirate ever) and other traitorous lying blowhards. Major is nothing but a pushover with these lying monsters.

Meaningful History Lessons

Major Garrett delivers a historical perspective that is often neglected on matters affecting disenfranchised people. I enjoy watching the interactions of the diversity of guests.
