Don’t know if anyone still watches this show, but goddamn it’s terrible now. I used to watch it religiously for years because before the rise of social media, it was one of the few tv programs that would sometimes cover certain issues of corporate and state systemic corruption that went unaddressed in mainstream media, and they would sometimes have some very good guests. Now it’s just a forum for Maher and other centrist Dems and Repubs to lament the Democratic party moving too far to left, complain about political correctness and purity tests, overexaggerate the Russia shyt, and condescendingly offer terrible political advice about beating Trump. Any time I checked it over the past year or so I see a gaggle of Heidi Heitkamps, Bari Weiss’s, Bret Stephens’s, and Michael Smerconish’s concern trolling about how nominating someone “too far to the left” will get Trump re-elected. Crazy how this show went from being a leftist (considered at the time) oasis in the tv media world for a lot of young people when it debuted to a tone deaf centrist platform.
