The major news networks are on the chopping block and some say that it's exactly what they deserve.

On the inaugural episode of The Wiretap Phil Romo and Chad Costello discuss the origins of how The Wiretap came to be. Phil delves into the history of the media in America and Chad discusses the failure of the media to hold people in power accountable. Phil and Chad ponder the future of a 4th estate that values ratings over journalistic integrity. They discuss Trumps utter disdain for news organizations that are critical of his administration and what the future could hold for a free press that is no longer free.
