We start with the odd experience of the ginko tree’s odor. Then we do uncovered stories in the news (uniformity clause in PA, Regan’s ex-roommate’s crime, rural poverty, the local LWV rule change), compare the new (and first) ads from PA-12 congressional candidates Marc Freidenberg and Judy Herschel, and the problems of Sinclair news’ partisan news coverage. You can see Deadspin’s great mash up of Sinclair anchors reading the anti-fake news script here.

By the way, I went back and watched twice more to Judy’s ad. I count about 40 unique people. It looks like more as the one scene of her talking to a group has several close-ups of people. I didn’t double count them, although a casual viewer will see it as more like 50 people maybe.
Also, there are no explicit references to her profession or to pharmaceutical companies. Interesting how much a viewer reads into the language that is there and finds connections to his or her own ideas about the causes of opioid crisis.
