Hour 1: San Bernardino terrorist attack update. ISIS link. Comparison of different terrorist attacks. Conservatives don’t propose to ban Saudi Arabians. Media frenzy in killers’ apartment. Cenk, Ben, Iadarola, and Jimmy hosting. Investigations into the terrorists that killed 14 people in San Bernardino have shown that the woman pledged an allegiance to ISIS and likely radicalized her fiance/husband. Discussion about the similarities and differences with the kinds of terrorist attacks we’re used to seeing and this one. Cenk notices that Conservatives haven’t pointed out the fact that they don’t propose to ban all Saudis, even though many have been found to be terrorists. The landlord of the home where the terrorist couple lived opened the residence and allowed tons of media figures into the apt to film and expose everything. Ben talks about the background of a news operation that forces them to do something like this without thinking.
Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. The boy that was let off due to his “Affluenza” has been caught drinking at a beer pong party. Doing this violates his probation from the drunken & murderous spree he went on years ago. George Zimmerman has been suspended from Twitter after he tweeted nude photos of an alleged ex girlfriend in order to get revenge for her infidelity. Zimmerman also included her phone number and email address. Ana points out that his previous tweets bragging about killing Trayvon Martin accompanied by a picture of his dead body didn’t get him banned.
