Episode 25: The Shows' Last Hurrah(?) of 2017

The last political media hurrah of 2017— was not all fireworks. The Sunday talk shows on New Year’s eve each put in varying amounts of energy to produce a quality episode. Three out of the four shows had substitute hosts to continue the reflective conversations from the previous week. And many shows failed to mention the few timely news stories of the week. 

This week on Polilogue we focus on the shows’ range on three distinct ways: the political climate going into the midterm elections (and the opportunity of constituents and media consumers to demand more); Congress’s legislative to do list; and the media coverage of the Russia investigation— or lack thereof. We also expand our rankings to identify the best show of the year! 

A packed show full of insight, frustration, and hope— we can’t wait to see what’s next for Polilogue in 2018. Happy New Year!
