December 6, 2014 Show

This week, after an extended rant about how grand juries aren't designed to uncover the truth, we'll speak with Heather "Digby" Parton about the public outcry after a spate of police killings of black men, the factual problems in a high-impact Rolling Stone story about rape on the UVA campus, and a staff exodus from the venerable New Republic magazine.

Then we'll speak with budget guru Stan Collender about the GOP's plan to put a thumb on the scale of future regulation by requiring the Congressional Budget Office to use some fuzzy math that advances their trickle-down economics.
