Bloomberg TV Launching 'With All Due Respect'
In October, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, co-authors of the book Game Change about the 2008 presidential election, will be cohosting a new show about politics, With All Due Respect, and it has set itself a high bar. It is billed as a conversation about politics, but "free of phoniness and spin," which some would argue are baseline political currency.
In a promo for the show, Halperin describes it as a combination of a "taco bar and a sushi bar," and Heilemann describes it as a combination of "Good Times and Game of Thrones."
