Plus, a year after Charlottesville, white nationalism has found a home on Fox News. The EPA is rolling back fuel standards with the help of spin from Sinclair. Black athletes have always been told to "shut up and dribble." And Mark Burnett should not be treated as a respectable figure while he engages in a coverup on behalf of Donald Trump. Also, Stephen Miller's uncle is done with his nephew's bullshit. And possible 2020 contenders should stop being coy. Christine Mai-Duc of the LA Times, Gonzalo Cordova, and Emily Axford join Jon to break down the week's news as we wait on the edge of our seats for more tapes.
