Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a decision from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that strongly boosts the freedom of conscience in a culture that often wants to crush any departure from liberal groupthink. They also take a wait and see approach as media outlets fret about Trump allies compiling dossiers to confront journalists in the 2020 cycle. They unload on CNN’s Brian Stelter for failing to confront a “Reliable Sources” guest who claims President Trump is responsible for more deaths than Hitler, Stalin, or Mao. And Jim has some strong opinions about those Indianapolis Colts fans who booed quarterback Andrew Luck for retiring on Saturday night.

    The media could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and nothing would happen to them.

    Could? They DO. Maybe EVERY DAY. Figuratively, at least.

    What if that Dead Zone guy is actually seeing the consequences of taking out that president, who would have PREVENTED a nuclear war?

    It’s actually a fairly common time-travel trope: like trying to prevent Hitler is what CAUSES Hitler.
