Please, move on to more important things. Or just re-listen to the diavlog. Or actually, don't re-listen: just listen. I'm not sure you did the first time.
niklkibong, whether Glenn and John believe any particular issue matters isn't dispositive, ya know? These things do matter in the context of contemporary politics. And the meta-issue - that is, the freedom with which some people (read Breitbart, e.g.) feel to assert anything whatever, regardless of facts; and whether anybody is going to push back with equal force - is extremely relevant to me. Liars thrive when everybody, except the people who believe them, ignores them. That's double plus ungood.
