Today's hot topics: Contempt-o-rama, China comma, Facebook drama, Gaza trauma, and more!

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! The show will be streamed on Hot Air’s Facebook page and embedded here and on the show page for those who are not on Facebook.

Join us as we welcome:

  • Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson brings us up to date on the week’s top stories and gives us a preview of tomorrow’s Hugh Hewitt show. We’ll talk about House Democrats’ attempts to punish William Barr for releasing the Mueller report, Chris Hughes’ call to break up Facebook, and the latest on trade talks with China.
  • Israel celebrates its independence this week, but the fireworks began last week from Gaza. Jeff Dunetz joins us to discuss both.
  • The White House Correspondents Association has launched a new grant program to bolster reporting on state governments. WHCA president Olivier Knox discusses that with me, along with the state of journalism today, plus previews his Sirius XM show “The Big Picture” on POTUS 124, which starts at 6 pm ET tonight.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page. Be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!
