Senior Editors Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi host this episode to discuss Thursday's deadly shooting in Maryland, Justice Kennedy's retirement, journalists' outrage about fake news, and to ironically argue about civility. "If the retirement of one of the oligarchs in black robes causes this much angst, that is a really good indication that the Supreme Court has taken too much authority over the lives of the American people," Hemingway said.
