Here's @RepJohnYarmuth on risk/reward of killing #Soleimani, slow walking #impeachment, mental state of @realDonaldTrump, and @CNN settlement with @CovCathColonels student Nick Sandmann 🎙️ AUDIO https://t.co/SW75ydyLVS @840WHAS #media #malpractice #Iran #Election2020 pic.twitter.com/UVynsge18U— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) January 8, 2020 Rep. John Yarmuth (KY-3) held nothing back in responding to President Donald Trump's decision to kill Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani. Yarmuth is quick to acknowledge that Soleimani was a terrorist but questions the risk because of heightened danger to U.S. military troops around the world. HE WAS A TERRORIST 🚨 https://t.co/L84eD7kMYZ— nicole andrea (@gocatsmeow) January 7, 2020 Rep. Yarmuth and I also talked about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's slow progress on moving impeachment forward. The congressman said there is abundant new
There is no shortage of public discourse about biased media. I've spent 40+ years in media with hundreds of colleagues in radio, TV, and print. Media is absolutely staffed with at least 85% liberal leaning people. That's not a slam, just a fact. When liberals are asked about this imbalance, they immediately reply "FOX NEWS!" OK, yes.

Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) joined me on 840WHAS to discuss his tweets damning the students of Covington Catholic high school as "appalling" and displaying "racist hatred" at a January field trip to DC. Yarmuth declined to apologize for tweeting before learning the wider story of a group of adult Herbrew Israelites hurling abusive, homophobic language at the students, and how additional video showed that the Native American group approached the students. Initial social and traditional media accounts reported that the students "swarmed" the Native Americans to mock and intimidate the elders. Whoooooaaaaa. Slow your roll, rush-to-judgment team. The videos don't lie. Agenda-driven social justice warriors supplying limited views do lie. Student Nick Sandmann appeared on TODAY to tell his story. It was
