Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

In recent week, the nation has witnessed multiple episodes of gun violence and killings from Kentucky to Pittsburgh to California, but the outcomes of the midterm election offer hope to more gun law reforms and renewed interest in gun safety. Political scientist at SUNY Cortland and author of five books on gun policy, Robert Spitzer, wrote a new op-ed in the New York Times about how the midterm election results suggest that the power of the N.R.A. may be diminishing. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last week a lot has happened, the midterms came and went but votes are still being tallied in key races, Trump replaced Jeff Sessions with Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General and the horrific shooting in Thousand Oaks, CA. Mark returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and so much more.

The nation was transfixed by Beto O'Rourke's challenging Ted Cruz in Texas, and when he lost, many were disappointed. Yet, the turnout in Texas shows huge gains for progressive, from a variety of down ballot wins to signs of a younger, more diverse electorate.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened from the midterm elections, disputed results as the ballots are still being counted, and Trump’s pick of Matthew Whitaker as the acting Attorney General.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director at the new HuffPost Personal and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at HuffPost.

Yesterday, the White House stripped CNN reporter Jim Acosta of his security credentials after a heated scene at a press conference earlier in the day. This latest move represents yet another attempt to chill the media after Trump and the White House have framed the press the enemy of the people. SiriusXM’s chief DC correspondent Olivier Knox experiences the Trump administration press room first hand and is also the president of the White House Correspondents' Association. He joins me on the show today to talk about press freedoms and more.
