HWX, with Steven Hayward: Cheerleading!

ricochetpodcast

It’s a Saturday special edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience podcast. John Hinderaker of Power Line and me, Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas, joined by our special guest, the great Steven Hayward. 

It’s a lively discussion on the state of the Presidential race, including the characteristic optimism of John Hinderaker. He doesn’t buy into the doom and gloom so many Republicans are feeling with regard to Mitt Romney’s chances in November, and he tells us to grab our pom-poms and not to believe the hype. 

We also get into the issues surrounding recent political polls and alleged bias with regard to over-representation of Democrats, and we preview the Presidential debate coming up on Wednesday. Finally, we wrap things up with Steve by putting our professional prognostication reputations on the line and predicting what will actually happen on November 6.

Then it’s “Loon of the Week”, courtesy of the fine folks at the Media Research Center. And “This Week in Gatekeeping” (with an international flavor), as the editors and fact checkers in Iran prove to be every bit as effective as their American counterparts. 

We hope you enjoy. Feedback in the comments section is most welcome.
