Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for May 27, 2020

Polito Party. Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito says the graduation party at her brother's house, which she attended over the weekend, was within the Administration's guidelines for limiting social contact during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lt. Governor further claimed the gathering was to be expected with the weather turning warmer. The state’s new safer-at-home advisory urges residents to only leave home for health care, worship, permitted work, shopping, and outdoor activities. Is Polito a hypocrite?

Fake News vs Twitter Attacks. Author and book editor for The Federalist, Mark Hemingway joins Dan to discuss his article: “Media's Unpunished Lies Hurt The Nation Far Worse Than Trump's Indefensible Tweets”. Mark's premise is that while the President’s tweets regarding a Scarborough staffer who died unexpectedly years ago are reprehensible, anti-Trump media have made their own inexcusable and vicious attacks on Americans who don't share the center-left worldview. He posits that the only way to hold the President accountable for bad actions is for the rest of us - including the press- to reject mean spiritedness in its entirety. Do you agree?

Who Pays For PPE At The Dentist? Dentist offices are re-opening with staff swaddled in PPE from head to toe.

Is this fair?
