    Christine will still be on the podcast, right? There will be a popular uprising among listeners if she is not! :)

    Regarding the horrific media coverage of Mar a Lago, I remember watching All the President’s Men, and Woodward and Bernstein feeling absolutely horrible when they got a story wrong about the grand jury testimony of the Nixon campaign treasurer, Hugh Sloan. They got raked over the coals by Bradlee and felt fortunate to not get taken off the story or get fired. Today, literally a week does not go by without a major outlet making a major reporting error. No one is accountable and they just steamroll on to the next debacle. Zero credibility.

    As soon as I saw the name Chris Stirewalt I stopped reading the description.  I knew I wanted to download this episode, regardless of the topic.
