Unimaginative and shallow
3 March 2019 | by hognls-57954See all my reviews

If you want to hear one side of the story this is for you. Biased reporting with nothing you haven't heard or seen before in the lame stream media. It would be refreshing to see an objective news show. Just another echo chamber type program. Don't waste your time.
