Wheel of Kasen: Hyped Media Bombs, Cuts for Public Broadcasting
ST. LOUIS —
What a wild week in the news world! A couple of hyped up bombs from the media to talk about this week on the Wheel of Kasen! We started off with a big stink bomb when a documentary on Michael Brown Junior went from worldwide news to becoming nearly invisible overnight after unedited video discredited its already weak premise.
Then Rachel Maddow hyped up a great big old "nothing-burger" as one Heat Phone caller described it, when she released the much sought-after tax returns of President Donald Trump. The returns showed that he paid nearly $40 million in taxes about a decade ago. Everyone yawned and put it in the same category as Al Capone's vault.
Finally, President Trump's budget topped out at a very lean $1.1 trillion, about 1/8 of President Obama's last budget. The lean budget means that cuts to lots of government programs are in it, so critics are attacking it.
Jamie and Mark Kasen battle it out over quite a week on the Wheel Of Kasen!
