2074 - Planet Fox: How Rupert Murdoch's Empire Of Influence Remade The World w/ Jonathan Mahler
Jonathan Mahler (@jonathanmahler), staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, joins us to discuss his article, 'Planet Fox: How Rupert Murdoh's Empire of Influence Remade the World.' 88-year-old Rupert Murdoch currently sits atop the world's most powerful media empire. Mahler and co-writer Jim Rutenberg examine how Murdoch took a modest inherited newspaper business and turned in into a diversified conglomerate capable of influencing elections and policy around the world. From the rise of Margaret Thatcher to the push for war in Iraq to the current wave of right-wing populism (Trump, Brexit, et al.), Murdoch has proven a savvy foe of progressivism as he both shapes and capitalizes on prevailing trends in conservative politics.

2073 - Barr's Kabuki Theater & Democratic Party Drama w/ Sean McElwee
Good morning, today the MR crew breaks down the live news from Barr's Mueller Report press conference and the fight for the Democratic nomination's latest war of words between Bernie Sanders and the Center for American Progress. While the Mueller Report has ostensibly been released by the Department of Justice. However, to any shrewd political observer, Barr's press conference was a textbook demonstration of how a ruling party disseminates news. It's not a coincidence that Bill Barr gave a speech looking to exonerate Trump of any wrongdoing the day before the Easter and Passover holidays. Taking a quick break from the Mueller Report, Sean McElwee from Data for Progress joins Sam to discuss the changing landscape and left-punching developing in the Democratic Party. For McElwee, this fight began with the DCCC decision to blacklist political vendors who work with candidates who primary sitting Democrats, even if that Democrats is an anti-choice right leaning official like Dan Lipinski. This decision has metastasized to an effort to squash the Justice Democrats and their desire to push the party left. It seems the Democratic leadership has forgotten the messages that won them the house in 2018: that they will concentrate on investigating Trump and advocate for voter rights policies like HR 1. Democratic leadership has capitulated to the bad faith Republicans demands to condemn and ostracize new Democratic members of Congress like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. McElwee believes the reactions to the 2018 midterms comes down to a generational divide in the new Democratic majority. Pelosi, Hoyer, and Cummings wish things could go back to the "Beltway as Usual" while AOC, Omar, and Jayapal are trying to push a more aggressive party with bold reform like the Green New Deal and Medicare for All. McElwee and Sam wrap their discussion with an insider's look into how the DCCC and Democratic leadership is presented and consumes polling in DC. And in the Fun Half: Barr's interpretation of Mueller's Findings reminds us of the SCOTUS Citizen's United ruling from Justice Roberts, Even Fox News thinks Barr sounded like a defense attorney, AOC's spokesman explains why Appalachian coal miners would dig the Green New Deal, John Bolton receives thunderous applause for [checks notes] restricting travel to Cuba, Kamala Harris apologizes for the punitive truancy laws she enacted as California AG, Beto wants to address corporate concentration by leaving Amazon alone, Quilette wonders if the IDW is ideologically diverse and decides Dave Rubin is right wing, Dave Rubin defends his Ideas Only platform, Bernie's call to eliminate private insurance, plus your calls and IMs!

2070 - Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management w/ Caitlin Rosenthal
Caitlin Rosenthal, Assistant Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley, joins us to discuss her new book, Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management. On today's show: Sarah Sanders says Congress isn't smart enough to look over Trump's tax returns. Caitlin Rosenthal, Assistant Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley, joins us to discuss her new book, Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management. While some think that capitalism worked at cross purposes with slavery, the two were intertwined for much of US history. By looking at the complex connections between New World slavery and early capitalist development, as well as elements that have carried over into modern management structures, Rosenthal shows how the institution of chattel slavery influences our system of production to this day.

Dan Crenshaw says attacks on him are "a new low in partisanship and dishonesty." Should the Democrats advocate jailing bosses who hire illegal immigrants?

By Gorsich's logic, that would mean the 2nd amendment *only* means that American citizens have the right to own and operate muzzle loaders and blunderbusses. These assholes interpret the 8th to allow for savage behavior to predominantly brown death row population, but don't you dare suggest the 2nd isn't evolving and inclusive of all firearms. Fucking hypocrites!!

I enjoy some of the jokes, commentary, and guests. Love the historical perspective on current events, especially when so much news today is divorced from history even of the last couple decades. On the other hand, I could do without the sophomoric anti-capitalist rhetoric and ideology. The tone of some of the hosts comes across as alternately smug and naive when criticizing ideological opponents or touting their own views.
