Progressives are finally learning how to make their case to rural America

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at how the media are sucking up to insurrectionist Republicans in anticipation of Democratic losses in the upcoming midterms. He also argues that Trump's social media venture, ironically called "Truth Social," has been a smashing success and considers some stunningly clueless punditry about Russia's disastrous assault on Ukraine. 

Then we are joined by Jaisal Noor, a correspondent with The Real News Network, to talk about his series of reports detailing how some progressive groups are learning to play a long game using "deep canvassing" to make gains in rural communities that have typically been hostile to their cause.
