Join Ben Hunt, Matt Zeigler and Jack Forehand as we break open the news to reveal the nudging language behind the headlines. Media bias is real, but not in the way you think.

In this episode of Breaking News we look at the impact of the presidential debate and the role it played in changing the common knowledge about President Biden’s fitness for office. We explore the concept of common knowledge and illustrate how public perception shifts when everyone knows that everyone else knows something. We discuss the implications for the 2024 election, the role of media in shaping these narratives, and the potential fallout within the Democratic Party. Intertwining serious political analysis with lighter anecdotes, including a story about the Beastie Boys’ early days, we emphasize the importance of community and shared understanding in navigating these turbulent times. Join us as we break down what’s making us tick with clear eyes and full hearts.

  1. I really hope the comment about moving towards proportional representation in the House being another episode is true. Would love to listen to that.

    Another great podcast. Thanks, guys.

  2. Yeah, the debate did change everything. It took my existing prior concerns and put them into a new realm of undeniable clarity. Can’t unsee what was experienced, and the George Stephanopolous interview a few days later confirmed the less than rational response of the affected.
    I’ve made financial preparations to hunker down and wait this out. No FOMO, time to get practical.
