Episode 44: Two explosive conversations

Two conversations stood out on the Sunday talk shows. First: three legal experts on ABC’s This Week discuss the Southern District of New York’s (SDNY) investigation into Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney. The panel included Alan Dershowitz,  professor emeritus at Harvard Law School; ABC chief legal analyst Dan Abrams; and Mimi Rocah, former federal SDNY prosecutor. We question the value of having a voice like Alan Dershowitz on the shows— and the effectiveness of counter perspectives. 

Second, we spend time dissecting the bizarre State of the Union interview with Kellyanne Conway. Both journalist and guest bungled up their questions and answers— but who came off worse? That’s a hard contest with no winners.
