Jones and Mike – 09/01/15: The United States of Apologies…Who’s Apologizing and What For?

Living in the United States of Apologies Jones and Mike debate one another about the necessity and sincerity of public apologies. Using the backdrop of ESPN Baseball Analyst Curt Schilling’s tweet about radical Islamists and Nazis, the guys discuss the public’s inability to push themselves away from spoon fed sound bites and meaningless apologies and demand that the mainstream media give them the full picture of what is happening in the news stories that are being presented and debated. At the end of the day however, the guys know that partisanship talks and sensible discussion walks, and the pair debate, “who becomes more unhinged when they share their viewpoints, conservatives or liberals?”

Show Highlights:
