Watchdog Podcast: Illegal haircuts in Idaho and hypocrisy in the New York Times

By   /   February 26, 2016  /   No Comments

In the two weeks since the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, we’ve heard a chorus of chants from the left about the need for Republicans to do their jobs and rubber-stamp President Barack Obama’s yet-to-be-announced pick for the vacant seat on the bench.

But just a few years ago, Democrats and liberals in the media were taking a different line.  Matt Kittle sits down with Eric Boehm to discuss how things change when the shoes are on the other feet.  In his cross-hairs: The New York Times.

Then, Dustin Hurst from the Idaho Freedom Foundation stops by to explain why the state government in Idaho is spending $150,000 to hire more inspectors who will target illegal barber shops and makeup studios.  The state’s Board of Cosmetology apparently has nothing better to do.

All that, plus a look at how Colorado taxpayers are supporting lobbyists for state and local governments, and our weekly Nanny State segment on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
