For today’s special show, I go through the two false premises on right-wing media. Right-wing media believe that we are ahead in the elections and just need to run out the clock. Right-wing media also believe that Trump will somehow be better than his first term without building a new movement focused on substance. I show how both of these premises are demonstrably false, and, in fact, Republicans are likely to lose control of Congress anyway. Now is precisely the time to have a budget fight over immigration. I explain why we will be unlikely to have an opportunity to properly govern next year and why the next president will be saddled with the first recession amid a cataclysmic-level debt and interest crisis. Rabble-rousing may or may not win elections — and increasingly is failing to do so — but let’s not kid ourselves about our ability to convert the current strategies into civilization-saving victories.   Learn more about your ad choices.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
