another up first where Steve innskeep demonstrates not only hack level journalism (not referencing anything about democratically aligned transport head and the implications therein OR Gen Jo BiDen's "infrastructure bill") but a seemingly crass joke about what the engineers should have been focused on?? super crass considering Maryland demo aligned, and Biden infra bill falling short somehow..

I wish the war would stop in Israel as well, but do these people think that Trump is going to stop it in their favor If he gets in office? Does Trump really care about them or their cause at all or the people that are dying over there?

Israel has became an exemption for everything! No one cares they're an apartheid which is commiting genocide, ethnic cleansing, occupation. They attack civilians, hospitals, mosques, churches and embassies not even in the Palestine! in the whole parts of the region!

love the podcast but the pronunciation of Gaza by Jane Arraf bothers me. I know they probably have a justification and have spent tons of time in and around the country, but can't help but hear a very American pronunciation that refuses to bend or adapt to other cultures.

i hope people wise up & stop donating to RNC. They are just filling Trump's pockets with money for his debt. Early rigged voting for Republicans? That's the only way Trump will win. The majority of people who know the Trumps hate them! Nasty people.

How pathetic is this kind of news! Why you didn't cover Israeli rape, sexual assaults and harassments in Gaza? Wasn't it a UN report either?

Great coverage of this topic, providing context for % uncommitted votes in previous primary elections. This compromise of Biden at risk of allowing Trump to win is maddening for me ( way to high cost for sending message of discontent to Biden!) The efforts in Michigan to get Dems to vote uncommitted deepen my commitment to support Biden. I'll be doing even more than I intended to get out the vote for Biden, given awareness of how internal Dem divisions could give election to Trump.

And so do these people think that Trump will do better? because if they don't support Biden then they are supporting Trump.
