by Skip January 15, 2017

All of these Sunday talk shows have a panel discussion during their shows – and that’s pretty much why I watch.  This time, quite the reveal.  Beside the host of Meet The Press, Chuck Todd (who pretty much stayed out of this back and forth), the people involved in this discussion were: “The Atlantic” [a very […]
