Disappointing
13 February 2019 | by mdrummond-30750See all my reviews

The first season was very interesting, and well done. Once season 2 starts it showcases the mental breakdown of biased liberals which was extremely disappointing. An example is the blatant disregard of the Steve Scalise shooting while simultaneously promoting people like Don Lemon as actual journalists. The actual show is more of a circus than anything else.
