As we wade through puff pieces on Trump and watch Fox News’ ratings fall, we turn to media critic and founder of PressRun: the home of fearless media commentary, Eric Boehlert. He joins me on the show to talk about the latest in media coverage and more.

As Biden prepares to come into office in January, calls to hold Trump to account grow louder. The incoming president will have to decide whether or not to investigate and prosecute his predecessor, and if so, how. Staff writer at The Atlantic, James Fallows, joins me to talk all about the possibilities. 

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with more failed legal challenges from the Trump campaign, and the continued stalling of the stimulus while McConnell pushes more judicial nominees through.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.
