Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for August 12, 2019

MBTA Fall Slow Downs. The MBTA is speeding up repairs this fall because of public angst over the aging system and the recent spate of derailments. To up their time table, transit authorities say they will shut down core sections of the busy Red, Orange and Green Line on weekends throughout the fall effecting hundreds of thousands of riders. Dan says they are just doing what we asked them to do. Nancy says this is a mistake...Who do you agree with?

Epstein Suicide? Financier Jeffrey Epstein, long dogged by accusations of sex trafficking and sexual abuse of girls, was found dead Saturday after he apparently hanged himself. Attorney General William Barr says there will be an investigation into the federal jail which left Epstein unattended even though he was on a suicide watch. Epstein's ties to princes, politicians and famous and powerful people have also led to conspiracy theories about whether he did in fact take his own life. Dan and Nancy Come down on opposite sides of the issue. What do you think?

Tucker Carlson And The "Hoax Of White Supremacy." Dan takes Tucker Carlson to task after the Fox News host announced on his show that white supremacy is “actually not a real problem in America,” and that the idea it is a problem is “a hoax” and “conspiracy theory used to divide the country.” Advertisers are walking away from Carlson's show? Are you as well?
