War and Lies in Gaza

One man's misinformation is another's truth-telling.

Sarah, Steve, Chris, and David French discuss the war an Israel as a ground invasion of Gaza seems imminent and Western media spreads disinformation about a deadly blast in a Gaza hospital. The roundtable then turns to the House speaker race, this time giving the topic appropriately-lengthed shrift. Also:

-Illusion of Israel’s invincibility

-Information warfare

-The power of confirmation bias

-Trump’s praise of Hezbollah

-Can Republicans be united?

-Matt Gaetz and the Seven Dwarves

-Worth Your Time (?): Zero-turn lawnmowers
