Federalist Senior Editors Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi hosted the Federalist Radio Hour with their guest, Mark Hemingway, senior writer at the Weekly Standard. They discussed this week’s news including Hillary Clinton’s campaign stop at the New York subway, the media’s treatment of religious liberty cases, and the new second base slide rule in the MLB.
With the approaching New York primary, Harsanyi and Hemingway discuss whether Ted Cruz is going to have to walk back his comments about New York values. “I don’t know how you can win a state by insulting the people there,” Harsanyi said.
Mollie said the media is hurting the cause of civil discussion when it comes to religious freedom. “We do have a long history in the county of respecting and valuing religious freedom, and yet it seems that our media are inhabited a great deal by people who aren’t religious themselves,” she said.
Mollie and Mark attended the Washington National’s opening day game and said it’s obvious why people need baseball more than ever year. “There were three games on Sunday night and I noticed people just started talking on social media, on Facebook, on Twitter, and they were actually talking about things that were nice instead of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,” Mollie said.
