Cenk and Iadarola hosting. Fallout from Kevin McCarthy’s admission that the Benghazi panel was created to take down Hillary Clinton continues. Video of Hillary’s new ad using his words to spread the word. Cenk talks about how the media went along with the obvious use of the panel to hurt Hillary, but is now surprised. Video of Fox News panel that made the story about Hillary Clinton and her emails. Video of Clinton laying into the creation of the Benghazi panel at a town hall event. Cenk enjoyed Hillary finally getting upset. As Columbus day approaches, discussion about the horrific things that Christopher Columbus did, and why he should not be celebrated in America.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. California approved legislation that would legalize doctor assisted suicide. A Facebook user posted a selfie at work that included a co-worker’s Black kid in the background, where he and his friends mocked the kid. When the post caught the attention of everyone on the internet, his employer caught wind of it and fired him, along with anyone else that mocked the boy. Cenk is blown away by the amount of racism that still exists. The Harvard Debate team faced off with prison inmates, and lost. The prison conducts these things to see if they’re properly giving inmates an opportunity to make it in the world after being released. Cenk talks about how we spend over $200 billion/year imprisoning people.
