On the latest episode of The Kicker, we run through some of the week’s biggest media stories, including Trump’s 100-day milestone, what didn’t make it into The New York Times‘ James Comey takeout, and the coverage narratives emanating from France. Then, we discuss whether a new, fictionalized portrayal of El Chapo can speak to larger journalistic truths. Finally, we ponder where a new-look Fox News might sit within a fast-changing conservative media.
