Empathy battles schadenfreude when anti-vaxxers die from Covid

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show with his ongoing quest to find some positive developments in our dystopian present. 

 
Then we are joined by Lili Loofbourow to talk about the growing popularity and moral ambiguity of the Herman Cain Awards, which chronicle the Covid deaths of hardcore anti-vaxxers and belligerent anti-maskers in great detail. 
 
And finally veteran border reporter Melissa del Bosque joins us to explain how Border Patrol officials work with right-wing media outlets to help craft their narrative of a border that's perennially in crisis in order to undermine Democrats and support their hardline immigration policies.
