Nicole Sandler attempts to unpack the media malpractice by the AP and NBC "news" in declaring Hillary Clinton the presumptive nominee before reaching 2383 pledged delegates. Randi Rhodes calls in to weigh in, and give us an update on our new radio venture. GottaLaff joins in for hour two and takes calls with Nicole.
If you think this country has gone mad, you're not alone. Today, we talk about the insane with Deborah Newell (@litbrit) in FloriDUH and in primary-land. And we'll get a dose of sanity from Debbie Lusignan, aka Sane Progressive here on YouTube and beyond.
Earlier this morning, I put up a guest editorial from Jennifer Nix and Mark Myers that first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle last week.

Nicole Sandler recaps last night's CNN Forum with the 3 remaining GOP presidential hopefuls and it's a sadder reality than we could have imagined.

Nicole Sandler calls out the media for its role in turning the 2016 election into a farce. GottaLaff tells how the LA Times showed its bias this week. Claire Conner returns to the show to help trace the GOP insanity back to her childhood with the John Birch Society. And Tim Canova, the congressional candidate challenging Debbie Wasserman Schultz returned. Plus tone matters, Susan Sarandon speaks out and lots more.
Part two of the 2016 primary season is upon is, and madness is an apt description. Today, Nicole Sandler is joined by media strategist and trainer Joel Silberman who tries to make sense of the nonsensical. And Gaius Publius gives us the truth about delegate counts and what is possible.
Nothing is as it seems in Primary-land. Today, Nicole Sandler discusses the political state of the union with author and professor Harvey J. Kaye, and Blue America's Howie Klein.
