This is the Babylon Bee weekly news podcast for the week of 2/5/2020 with special guest host ADAM FORD.
In this episode of The Babylon Bee podcast, editor-in-chief Kyle Mann and creative director Ethan Nicolle welcome the creator… of the Babylon Bee: Adam Ford. They discuss the week’s top stories like CNN’s coverage of the problematic panel of experts doing something about the deadly coronavirus, now multiple Bernie staffers advocating violent revolution, and Trump’s State Of The Union address where the guys make predictions about media reactions (by the time this episode airs, you can see how prophetic they were).
In the subscriber portion, Kyle, Ethan, and Adam talk Superbowl half-time sex show, Brexit finally happening, and how our government’s legitimacy is forever gone now since Republican Senators didn’t just do whatever Democrats say.
Adam Ford is now in the real news business.
Check out his new site DISRN. You can also sign up for the daily Adam Ford Newsletter.

Story 1 – CNN Condemns D-Day Soldiers For Lack Of Diversity
Trump tweeted out a photo of his task force. I guess it was all white males.
“We will continue to monitor the ongoing developments,” the President said in his post. “We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!”
CNN recently posted an Coronavirus task force another example of Trump administration’s lack of diversity…
“It’s a statement that’s as predictable as it is infuriating: President Donald Trump’s administration lacks diversity… They communicate a “patronage network that everyone is operating under,” as Eric Yellin, an associate professor of history and American studies at the University of Richmond, told The Washington Post last year, about a different set of photos. “Having that network be interracial is really important. But the visuals that have come to define the Trump administration say something else, too. They signal which people in a multi-racial, half-female country Trump values the opinions of: mostly white men who are mirror images of the President himself.
