In our first time back in the ring since last week’s election results, the beltway is abuzz with cabinet talk. The Sams are out this week, so Brian and John are joined by the Daily Caller’s Chris Bedford and former Reagan administration official Bruce Fein to talk about the forthcoming Trump cabinet, what they actually remember from election night, and how Facebook employees are once again trying to censor your newsfeed.
John, Brian, Bruce, and Chris delve into the future of Trump’s administration. What do recent high profile picks like Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. (A, 87%) as Attorney General, Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., (C, 77%) as CIA director mean for the next four years? Is Trump starting to channel Lincoln, like John Gray writes elsewhere at CR?
The gang discusses the latest Silicon Valley attempt to crack down on conservative media by limiting so-called ‘fake news” sites, and what it means for free speech in the media market going forward.
