In this episode, we talk with Jim Acosta, CNN anchor for weekend programming and the network's chief domestic correspondent, about the critical role of a free press as necessary noise in a functioning democracy. Acosta weighs in on the implications of the January 6, 2021 violent attacks and the ongoing insurrection for democracy in America and why we need a bipartisan commission to investigate. "If we don't, we will have one political party deny what happened on January 6," says Acosta, and we're likely to see future protests or attempts to overturn results in future elections if one party doesn't like the outcome.
