The Rundown - Thursday, April 13, 2017: Bill O'Reilly's "vacation"; Pres. Trump backs away from major economic campaign promises; Gouging college students with "fees"; Kids and puppies explain difference between Dems and Republicans

On Tuesday night, Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show, the dominant show on cable TV for 20 years, came to an odd end with O'Reilly announcing that he would not be on the show again April 24th as he would be taking a "planned" vacation. Color me, and many others, skeptical. 

After sexual harassment allegations made by Wendy Walsh, who will be a guest on my show on Friday at 8:36 AM, advertisers had been fleeing The O'Reilly Factor at an incredible pace:

At 6:36 AM we'll talk with LA Times media reporter Stephen Battaglio about what's currently known or rumored about the situation.

At 7:36 AM we'll talk with former congressman, former president of the state board of education, and current principle of the state-test-leading Liberty Common High School, Bob Schaffer, about his article regarding CSU gouging students with "fees" and then distributing them (or not) based on apparent political bias:

Donald Trump has changed his mind on a major economic campaign promise as well as on a minor one: He will not label China a currency manipulator. It's a welcome change from a stupid idea. He also is now a supporter instead of an opponent of the Export-Import Bank, which is an unwelcome change from a good idea (e.g. opposing the Bank.)

We'll talk about two bills in the state legislature which really lay out the difference between Democrats and Republicans. The first is a Democratic State House bill which would require someone to get a license to set up a web site that connects dog walkers and other pet caregivers with pet owners. The other is a Republican State Senate bill, actually already signed into law by the governor, which allows someone to watch up to four children, i.e. other people's children, in a home without needing a license. Think about that.

Always the same arguments against freedom, really arguments to protect a cartel:
