They are from the progressive left, and do an excellent job explaining RussiaGate. Hedges particularly is in his element as he is perhaps one of the worlds top experts on how the media are a corrupt seething pit of liars. He explains how the media are now in damage control much the way they were after the Iraq WMD fiasco. Hedges argues that Russigate is 'one of the most shameful periods in modern American journalism.'

This discussion was so good it prompted an article from the Washington Post complaining that it had been recommended by a YouTube algorithm, suggesting that there must be Russian trickery involved. It never occurred to the Post that perhaps it was just good journalism, something conspicuously absent on the Wapo website.

The pair savage fellow lefty Rachel Maddow. She in turn tweeted out the Post article. This is good TV.
