James West and Ben Dreyfus are young renegade reporters who work as Senior Editors at the non-profit investigative news magazine Mother Jones. They recently attended the White House Correspondents' Dinner which President Trump ducked. They join Josh to discuss the public's cynicism towards the press, and journalists' relationship to power. (Plus, news of the firing of James Comey, the FBI Director, breaks while we're recording.) Is "fake news" real? Is Bob Woodward a schmuck? Is the White House Correspondents' Dinner more than a vapid, back-slapping schmooze-fest? Yes, maybe and no.
