Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn - August 14, 2016 - HR 3

August 14, 2016

An astoundingly hostile CNN takes heat from Trump supporters, as its ratings plunge. Deservedly so? Is Trump's energy misdirected when he criticizes the media -- or might he be promoting "talking head" accountability to the American people? We review Trump's current media strategies and take an increasingly unforgiving look at lingering Never-Trumpers. Callers suggest Republicans should never be voting for Anti-Trump Republicans down ticket -- i.e. House & Senate -- thereby mirroring the venomous logic of "Never Trump." Could it happen in 2016? Meanwhile, we listen to disgraced pundit Bill Kristol call Trump a "bully" even as Kristol personally bullies Kayleigh McEnany, a young Trump supporter, right there on CNN. Has Kristol gone over the edge? Also, should Christians fight to repeal "Johnson Amendment" restrictions on free speech? With Listener Calls and Music via Natalie Imbruglia, Iris DeMent, Kelly Willis and the Beatles. Plus, an extended appreciation of Puccini's Nessun Dorma, as rendered by Luciano Pavarotti, as interpreted by "Father Hugh." Tramontate stelle, Vincero!
