10/27 The Right’s Propaganda Machine Revs Up w/ Digby & Film Guy Matthew

October 27, 2017

Happy Casual Friday! On today’s show, Heather Digby Parton stops by to lend her expert commentary on Senator Jeff Flake’s resignation, Gorka’s accusations against Hillary, and more. Film Guy Matthew also comes by to discuss his sick Ebay lots, what movies we should watch, and a TV clip of Isla Fisher saying she owes her career in the U.S. to Sarah Silverman and Sam. A new Jimmy Reefercake song is debuted!

In the fun half: Trump discusses his specs for the wall, a caller wonders if we’re headed for civil war, the MR crew discusses Mark Ames and Matt Taibbi, and more on how Senator Flake should not be elevated.

Take our show survey here.
