FEATURING MATT GERTZ – President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani had hoped for an October surprise of the scale of the “Hillary Clinton email scandal” that arguably helped skew the 2016 election in his client’s favor. He shopped around a supposedly shocking story that would reveal Joe Biden’s nefarious business links involving his son Hunter. The Wall Street Journal refused to play so the New York Post did.

What is the current status of the rightwing echo chamber between Trump and Fox News ahead of the 2020 election?
