167. To Tell The Truth
It has been a week heavy with news, most of it bad. Shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Texas. The FBI/Hillary drama. On hand with Mona and Jay is Andrew C. McCarthy, the onetime prosecutor and a friend, as it happens, of the FBI director.
In due course, Mona and Jay talk about the presidential race: Trump and Saddam. Trump and Newt (who was once immensely proud of NAFTA). The Libertarian nominees, Johnson and Weld.
The hosts get into some television too, commenting on PBS – which essentially doctored a Fourth of July broadcast – and Fox News. Is Fox a force for good? In any case, people have to be savvy media consumers, as well as savvy consumers of other products.
Also included in this “Need to Know” is the Raid on Entebbe – which took place on America’s Bicentennial Day, July 4, 1976. The podcast goes out with an old theme song. Do you remember “To Tell the Truth”? Well, we have the song for you.
