Online fact checking is an incredibly shaky platform to stand on. It's often extremely biased with opinions only from one side, and is done to set a narrative as opposed to provide true facts. If misinformation was accurately curated most of the people calling for its regulation would be silenced.

It is hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube, which is why it's so disappointing the riots over the summer were encouraged instead of immediately stopped. The same people who rioted at the capital watched riots going on all summer while democrats said things like "who said protests are supposed to be peaceful," "they're not gonna stop and they shouldn't stop," and "why violent protests work." They also blame Trump for inciting the riot while ignoring he said they need to peacefully protest. They were reading a list of weapons found but can't seem to put 2+2 together. These people came to the capital with these weapons wanting to cause trouble long before Trump even spoke, they just used Trump as cover for a reason to riot.

Democrats are grass roots funded? Don't they receive more money from Hollywood, big tech, and Wallstreet? 🤔

I like how they've shifted blame for not getting a new covid bill done to Mitch in the Senate while Nancy Pelosi was on tape talking how how even though she lost seats in the House it still wasn't a mistake to not get a covid bill done before the election.

The Democratic messaging needs to reclaim morality, ethics and patriotism for we are the party that doesn't hate, that supports the Constitution and our Republic and who doesn't steal and scam the government. We need to drape the American flag on EVERYTHING.

Wow definitely went a little strong on Republicans are evil today. Their analysis of Trump is way off the mark... It wasn't the great thing he did to get the vaccine to where it is today, it was the great thing he didn't do which was let the government bureaucrats get in the way and slow this thing down.

I enjoyed listening to them say the way to get more people to vote for them is by letting them know and explaining to them how they're racist and the way not to be racist is to vote for these not racist policies which just happen to be all of theirs and none of the others. I also like how they recently changed the definition of racism to fit their new talking points.

My favorite part of this podcast is when they continually call everyone who doesn't think like them stupid and talk about how they'll fall for hoax put in front of them. Then they bring on Rachel Maddow and talk about integrity like this podcast and Rachel didn't spend 3 years talking about Russian collusion and the crimes Trump committed and it was only a matter of time before he was found out. Oh and one of the first things out of Rachel's mouth was about the media not spreading Russian disinformation like the Hunter Biden story.... Welp that didn't take long for that story to sour.... Pay attention to your media sources people and don't reward them for constantly gas lighting you.

looking forward to Obama's appearance next week. I want to see if JF interrupts Obama at the same rate he interrupts Dan and Lovett.

can you guess how many times JF interrupted Dan during this episode? I don't understand why PSA won't fix this frustrating and nonproductive feature of an otherwise outstanding show.

thank you for the Maddow interview. Lovett was the right choice for interviewer, too. both of you are brilliant with unique gifts and the interview's choreography highlighted this. I wish PSA overall would modify its format to allow the unique brilliance of each host more space.
