Today’s podcast includes scintillating commentary on the weather in Minnesota, Obama’s Bain Capital smears, and speculation on the VP sweepstakes.
We’re also joined by the great John Nolte of Breitbart.com. He’s the editor-at-large, covering all things media, entertainment, and politics related at the Breitbart empire. We discuss how things have evolved at Breitbart.com since the tragic loss of Andrew. Then we talk about some of the recent initiatives and stories they’ve been covering, including the continuing vetting of Barack Obama, the battle to keep Politico and Buzzfeed honest, and the media’s ignoring of Obama’s continued use of lies and exaggeration regarding Romney’s record at Bain Capital. And no conversation with John Nolte would be complete without talking about the movies and some of the releases this summer that bare watching. In particular, John’s been hearing some great things about Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” to be released next week. It’s always fun to talk to John and you can see his work at Breitbart.com and follow him on Twitter at @JohnNC
Later, a long overdue Loon of the Week is presented to the longest serving Congressman in history, 86 –year-old John Dingell. Finally, This Week in Gatekeeping, with another disturbing mishap from the media, this time out of Durango Colorado.
