A new Gallup poll shows that 51% of Democrats still trust the mainstream media, but only 14% of Republicans do. (30% of Independents.) The average is at an historic low of 32%. Scott Ott talks with Dave Williams on KLIF-570AM in Dallas about the impact of our distrust of journalists.

Democrats are from Mars, Republicans are from…Texas. In this episode of Scott Ott Podcast (#36) ballot questions tell us all we need to know about the two parties.

On the heels of a new round of sniping and squabbling among Republican presidential candidates, I offer a new way to approach the whole process…one that could change your frustration to joy.

Would President Bernie Sanders have to Bern down the House…and the Senate…in order to accomplish his socialist purposes. In this episode of Scott Ott Podcast, I talk with my daughter — and Sanders supporter — 27-year-old Grace Barron-Martinez. She explains what she thinks Sen. Sanders means when he says that if Congress won’t cooperate, he’ll go straight to the American people.
