HWX is back this week by popular demand, with a special broadcast of Brian Ward and Paul Happe breaking down the critical issues of our time. Topics addressed include:

It’s the Summer of Fake News, we look back on how we got here, including a fond reminiscence of the father of Fake News, This Week in Gatekeeping. Also, since we don’t watch CNN anymore, we review exclusive audio of a recent Anderson Cooper 360 promo and ascertain its veracity.

We bring back an old friend, the Fear Update, and trace its morphing into the continuing Russia collusion delusions, and the new update, The Neighborhood of Make Believe. Today’s examples include Keith Olbermann comparing Russian collusion to a Cossack invasion and Alyssa Milano’s new website designed to train YOU to create your own video to persuade or intimidate your Congressional Representative into impeaching Trump. We give it a go with our respective Reps.

What were they drinking during the show? Alaskan Summer Ale and All Day IPA by Founders Brewery.

    Very much enjoyed the “Democratic Response” at the end.

    Always a treat to hear Mr. Paul Happe sing – Fake News and Don’t Fear the Donald are classics. And Asher’s Democratic response was hilarious. Good job guys.

    Brian is right when he separates C-Span as actual news and the other shows as entertainment. I barely watch news ever at this point. I find most of it to just be garbage. I don’t know how you fix it with the profit motive rewards more entertainment news… “guys yelling at each other at a table.”

    Dear Representative Happe,

    I am an active HWX listener and am deeply involved with the Ricochet community. I am very concerned about the mainstream media’s affiliation for the Democratic party. I urge you to hold the media accountable, just as I will you.

    Thank You
