11/21 Trump Admin To Destroy Net Neutrality w/ the MR Crew

November 21, 2017

On today’s show, Sam addresses an investigation into Matt Taibbi that turned up nothing, the crew discusses Charlie Rose’s grossness, John Conyers pays off his harassment victims with taxpayer dollars, the gang mocks census bureau nominee Thomas Brunell and his awful book, the FCC is going to hell and taking net neutrality with it, and the Republicans threaten the role of blue slips in blocking judicial nominees.

On the fun half: More discussion of sexual harassment, a caller wonders if the Democrats will learn all the wrong lessons from Ralph Northam’s victory, Alex Jones is breeding an army of conspiracy theorist super soldiers, a homophobic group invites a rainbow flag dancer to perform, congressman Greg Gianforte assaults a reporter and lies to the cops about it, Stephen Moore defends Roy Moore, and the Simpsons predicted Dennis Miller’s descent into madness. Also: Trump wants to end a work program for Haitians devastated by the 2010 earthquake, Ray from Westchester defends his county’s liberal-ness, the government is taking people’s driver’s licenses away for unpaid student loans, an IMer writes a Yelp review of Matt, and another IMer explains why anarcho-communism is the only solution to the violent contradictions of late capitalism.
