Senior Editors Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi discuss an array of topics from this week including: President Trump’s first joint address to Congress, the new DNC chairman, issues within the Democratic Party, the Lenten season, Russia, and the Academy Awards.
After the stories surrounding Senator Sessions this week, the media continues to double down on their obsession with Russia and the intel community. “It’s very frustrating to be in a media environment where you have an entire paranoid, conspiratorial, hysterical, McCarthyite Red Scare going on without a single named source, without a single allegation of wrong-doing,” Hemingway said. “I just demand more than that. I demand some evidence.”
Later in the hour, Hemingway and Harsanyi give their entertainment round-up of recent television, movies, and Oscar winners. “I’m sick of shows giving me twists every five minutes. I want a show that gives me what I want and that’s ‘Poldark,” Harsanyi said.
