The show was taped on November 1, 2018 in the Chicago Loop.
Charles Thomas debates and discusses with show host Jeff Berkowitz how the media could have reported on the sexual assault and harassment allegations about Judge Kavanaugh with the perspective of the Scottsboro Boys and Emmet Till incidents [Presumed Innocent, anyone?].
Similarly, Thomas discusses how the recent Tree of Life Synagogue shooting could have been reported with the perspective of the Charleston Church shooting during the Obama Administration, but that would not have fit the narrative of the mostly left of center to left wing biased reporting of the mainstream media about Trump.
