Digby on the State of the Democratic Primary Race; Greg Sargent Talks About the Media’s Struggle to Cover Trump

This week, Joshua Holland and Elizabeth Preza are thrilled to launched the very first episode of We've Got Issues. Who knows--it may become a collector's item! 

First up, we talk about the fluid state of the early days of the Democratic presidential primaries with blogger and Salon columnist Heather "Digby" Parton.

Greg writes The Washington Post's Plum Line Blog and is the author of An Uncivil War: Taking Back Our Democracy in an Age of Trumpian Disinformation and Thunderdome Politics
