July 9, 2016: More Police Bloodshed; Wingnuts Attack Comey; Roger Ailes Is Gross

This week, we start with a commentary about the mass shooting of police officers at a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.

Then we're joined by Robert Gangi, executive director of the Police Reform Organizing Project (PROP), to discuss the two unjustified police shootings of black men that apparently pushed the Dallas shooter over the edge.

We also talk to Karoli Kuns, managing editor of Crooks and Liars, about FBI Director James Comey's recommendation that Hillary Clinton not face charges for Emailghazi, and the backlash it set off on the right.

Finally, we welcome Cristina Lopez, a researcher and reporter at Media Matters, to talk about the lawsuit filed by Gretchen Carlson this week alleging that Fox News boss Roger Ailes sexually harrassed her in the grossest possible way.
