Hour 1: Cenk and John is hosting. The debate from last night broke records for viewership. Despite several polls that showed Bernie Sanders won the debate based on viewers, multiple news outlets claimed that Hillary Clinton won the poll. Even the polls conducted by these news organizations disagreed with their headline of Clinton as the winner. Cenko Unchained on this situation. After Lincoln Chafee’s awkward performance at the debate, he went on Hannity’s show to be yelled at about his tax plan. Video of Hannity getting disgusted and throwing money at the camera.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Former NBA star Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel and remains out in the hospital while his organs are failing. He apparently took an herbal version of viagra along with other drugs and alcohol. Jennifer Lawrence spoke out against the unfairness in Hollywood after the Sony hack revealed the discrepancy between male and female actors. Lawrence pointed out how women are more worried about negotiating their salaries than their male counterparts, as they’ll be seen as annoying, while men are seen as go-getters. Cenk only partially agrees with this. A 20 year old Oxford student resigned from her positions on several student organizations after admitting to having sex with someone that later told her it wasn’t consensual. She also admitted to inappropriately touching someone at a bar. Discussion of whether or not she’s being too hard on herself.
