4/20 Thomas Frank: The Revolution Will Not Be Curated

April 20, 2017

Author Thomas Frank reflects on the end of the Bill O’Reilly era. The development of O’Reilly’s persona. The renewed Sanders and Clinton battle. The bizarre anti Sanders bias of some of the Democratic elite. The Democratic elites failed belief in big data. Why Elizabeth Warren needs to run for President. The cult of the curator. The liberal obsession of creation. Do liberals worship professionals? Are we living an intellectual cartel? And monopoly media power in the digital age.

On The Fun Half: Bill O’Reilly is an absolutely terrible person. Was everyone complicit at Fox News. The Good Liars strike Fox News. Ivanka Trump is awful. Racist who punched a woman at Trump rally sues Trump for not covering his legal fees. The Patriots who wouldn’t go to the White House. Alan Branch calls out Donald Trump for being disgusting. DSA affiliated Black Lives Matter candidate wins a City Council seat in Atlanta and your calls IMS.

Cast: Sam Seder @samseder, Michael Brooks @_michaelbrooks, Matt Lech, @mattlech and Kelly Carey, @kellycarey.
