Bad Faith on Mar 18, 2021

This week, we’re joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, and television host Chris Hedges to get his take on the state of the left: What are the structural factors and ethical rationalizations that keep congressional progressives from taking the adversarial approach required to push a united Democratic government left?
