Beat the Press

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney and the panel discuss the implication of the National Weather Service’s choice not to publicly downgrade storm estimates this week, even though they knew it wouldn’t turn out to the be blockbuster they once predicted. The panel then weighs in on the popular podcast “Missing Richard Simmons” and discuss whether the host’s goal to find the fitness guru is driven by concern for his friend or is an invasion of privacy. Finally, the panel will discuss MSNBC Rachel Maddow’s scoop on President Donald Trump’s tax returns and why the fanfare around it quickly fell flat. And in a lightning round, the panel gives their opinions on whether partisan media outlets should participate in White House pool reports.
