Really great episode, this is the first I've listened on the podcast but the questions being added in post breaks the flow of the conversation. Sounds very robotic and its very easy to tell.

The fake news is not bull shit! CNN will report on a take then retract it when the truth comes out. Take James Comey now he's backpedaling over the recent Senate testimony saying "I made a mistake". What's CNN's take on it now?
