Episode 122: Sunday Special Segments

Each week the Sunday morning political shows are mainly compromised of interviews and panel discussions. But there are many other editorial decisions that are made that reflect show values and host preferences.

Today on a special episode of Polilogue, we discuss the extra segments of each show. We ask ourselves if (1) Data Download; (2) Nate Silver’s Do You Buy That?; (3) State of the Cartoonian; (4) Power Player of the Week; and (5) John Dickerson’s Asides are valuable contributions to our media diet.
