Total media dominance by a single, giant story has its advantages. One, it makes it easy to decide what to discuss that day on the show, and; two, it makes writing the episode synopsis relatively simple. Greg Dworkin and Armando both joined in the early discussion of the exploding NSA story. And in the second half of the show, we read the seemingly-unrelated but still oddly-related story of the internal strife and collapse of Ohio's maverick-y ultra-conservative political consulting firm (described by some detractors as a "cult"), the Strategy Group for Media.
