The influential Politico Playbook is run by the smart, talented duo of Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman. Watch our conversation as they talk about how the media has a bias towards conflict more than anything else and how "accountability journalism" is very important now more than ever.
They are Politico's dynamic duo: Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman write and compile one of the most important emails that journalists receive every morning in their Inbox: It's the Politico Playbook and it's vital when it comes to setting the scene inside the Beltway and driving the narrative that ensues. The cape crusaders (minus the capes) sat down with me this week to discuss their role in the media landscape.
Paul Farhi, the media reporter for The Washington Post says President Trump actually likes the mainstream media and loves the attention he gets from the outlets. Watch part of our interview here.
Two words clearly sum up President Trump's foreign policy views: Militaristic and Flexibility. Being flexible gives him (America) leverage and strength because it keeps potential enemies guessing. Keeping them off balance is the name of the game and the art of the deal as well. As for being militaristic, this is something Donald Trump said over and over again on the campaign trail. He called himself the most "militaristic person ever." The definition for militaristic is, "advocating or pursuing an aggressive military policy." Bingo. More analysis in my video analysis along with some reaction to the MOAB bombing in Afghanistan from political commentator and best-selling author David Limbaugh.
In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Congressman Mark Meadows, the leader of the House Freedom Caucus says Bible verses on patience and humility have gotten him through some rough stretches the last few weeks as he’s tried to reach a deal with The White House and GOP Leadership on healthcare reform. “Patience is not a virtue that comes easily to me but its to wait upon the Lord and so as I see that it has been reminded over and over and over again and it’s been confirmed over a dozen different places whether it’s in scripture or by other people sharing encouraging thoughts that’s where it’s been,” Meadows tells me. “What I hope that I’ve been able to portray is a real humble spirit in everything that I do because this is not about me, it’s not about the Freedom Caucus. It’s about the people of this great country that God has blessed.”
In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Congressman Mark Meadows says as leader of the House Freedom Caucus he doesn’t take President Trump’s tweets at hi, personally but admits being a punching bag can be difficult. “I don’t take his tweets as personal. They’re part of the negotiation, part of getting people to move, to get people to a ‘yes.’ Being a punching bag is difficult because sometimes the narratives are just not true.”
