Hour 1: Ana, Jimmy Dore and Johnny Sprinkles hosting. Fox and Friends ask MLK Jr.’s niece if he would feel bad on the war on the police and Black Lives Matter. Fox then reports on police violence on MLK day, cashing in on the badly timed violence. Joe Walsh tweets out a series of ignorant things about how white people cannot celebrate MLK Jr. day. They then discuss how lots of whites cannot see the black community beyond their own personal views.
Marco Rubio expressed his ownership of firearms from this past Christmas. He was simultaneously supporting the 2nd amendment in favor of his campaign, while fear mongering to help gain supporters. Hillary Clinton reacts to Bernie Sanders’s opinion on free health care. Bernie also laid out his health plan specifics and how most of the raised taxes fall on the rich. Donald Trump’s popularity is far lower than a lot of voters realize via stats. Bernie Sanders rating is not only much higher but the only positive statistic on the chart.
Hour 2: Ana, Keith Powell, and Hannah are hosting. The water crisis in Flint, Michigan has been causing the citizens to drink tainted (lead) water that makes them sick. Obama declared a state emergency. In Porter Ranch, Ca, there is a Methane leak. New footage of the Porter Ranch methane leak.
