Really informative, though I want to see more balanced reporting in terms of interviews with notably more conservative political figures.

I need to see more coverage of the police brutality during peaceful protests. They are inciting violence in crowds against completely compliant people, macing a little girl in the face, shooting paint canisters at people for standing on their own front step. https://twitter.com/JordanUhl/status/1266917228752056320?s=19

Why was the $8 million held up by HHS to the Native people when Congress appropriated this money? Why did it take so long for it to be released? Who directed the money to be held up? Sounds like Ukraine all over again. 🙄
