The Kumbaya Moment in American Politics. Or Maybe Not. While shooting victim Rep. Steve Scalise remains hospitalized in critical condition, Joy Reid of MSNBC attacks his political resume. The New York Times blood libels Sarah Palin, and former NYT executive editor Jill Abramson piles on. We scrutinize the propagandistic efforts of NBC's Chuck Todd, CBS's Scott Pelley and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal. Also, we consider a series of unfortunate remarks from the GOP's Jeff Flake and Mark Sanford. How has the Republican Establishment devolved into such a state of uselessness? Aiding and abetting the Hostile Media? With Listener Calls & Music via Roger Miller, Louane, Alan Jackson and Peter, Paul & Mary.
