Greg and Jeremy discuss Donald Trump's long time friendly relationships with top media
executives, particularly CNN's Jeff Zucker, how CNN aided Trump throughout the election, and why this proves just how ridiculous the idea is of Trump being at war with the media. We then discuss Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's business ties to major media moguls with connections to both Israel and Russia, and why it matters. We close by discussing why none of the major media outlets reporting on the Russia scandal should be trusted, and caution against centering activism around trying to debunk claims of Russia collusion.
