HWX: The End or the Beginning?

Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe of the Nihilist in Golf Pants convene for what may be the final HWX podcast of all time, or is it the first WHX broadcast?

Whatever the case, it was a stimulating conversation on the vital issues of today. Topics include

* Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast comments, including exclusive audio of what actually might have been said.

* Brian Williams and John Stewart, two pillars of elite media crumble in one week. What does it mean, and was anyone even watching them?

* Two more faces of elite journalism, as exhibited by a German Press Agency reporter and Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC.

* The new name of the podcast. Leaders so far are WHX (phonetically pronounced “wcxkscs”) or The Jerktown Romeos. We’re not sold on either, and we eagerly solicit Ricochet membership suggestions in the comments section. Anyone coming up with the winning sobriquet will be lavished with praise and exciting premiums.
