What is the media missing when reading the newly released transcript? Thom delves into the details with astute callers. At this moment when it appears certain that Donald Trump has used the power of his office for corrupt political purposes, the larger question that we will all live with for years is how will the Republican Party respond. Will they pretend that he was simply an aberration, drop him like a hot potato, and go back to pretending that they have some legitimate existence beyond doing the bidding of billionaires and corporations? Or will they open the party to politicians who are actually interested in serving the people? As long as the Supreme Court continues to assert that there is absolutely nothing wrong with billionaires and corporations owning their very own politicians, odds are The GOP will simply continue to be an extension of the lobbying industry. With or without Donald Trump. ~ Will Boris Johnson resign over the UK Supreme Court decision and Brexit? The British Supreme Court ruled that the prorogation of Parliament was unlawful. White House correspondent, Victoria Jones of the DC Radio Company joins Thom to explain that the 11 justices effectively said that Johnson lied to the Queen. The main issues are all to do with preventing Parliament from debating Brexit, which is due on 31 October. ~ Talk Media News report with Bob Ney.
