Oliver Willis on Why Mainstream Journos Keep Falling for Conservatives’ Bad-Faith Claims Over and Over Again

This week, Joshua Holland looks at an under-the-radar fight Senate Dems and Republicans are engaged in that could lead to a major battle over the Supreme Court. 
 
Then we're joined by Shareblue.com Senior Writer Oliver Willis to talk about why ostensibly neutral reporters bend over backwards to address conservative gripes about their coverage but respond to any criticism from the left with thin-skin and condescension. Oliver and Joshua also debate whether belligerent wingnut Joe Walsh's quixotic primary campaign against Donald Trump has any hope of shaping the outcome of the 2020 race.
