President Biden announced last month that his administration purchased 500 million at-home Covid-19 tests that Americans will be able to order for free. That pledge came while the country was dealing with Omicron, which has only continued to fuel an explosive growth in cases. We answer some of the questions of when and where those tests will become available. The U.S. meets with Russia today in Geneva, with other NATO allies set to join throughout the week. It's a high-stakes conversation, with the Associated Press stating that these talks could “shape the future of not only the [US-Russia] relationship but the relationship between the U.S. and its NATO allies.”  And in headlines: A deadly fire in the Bronx killed at least 19 people, the three white men who killed Ahmaud Arbery were all sentenced to life in prison, and Amy Schneider became the first woman on Jeopardy! to win more than a million dollars in a regular season.

Today on Polilogue, we go back to some of our show roots: comparisons of shows and editorial decisions! Both This Week and Meet the Press examined the escalating tensions of US-Russia relations. This Week took the approach of utilizing foreign correspondents and subject matter experts. They provided tons of context of Russia's encroachment on Ukraine. Meet the Press, on the other hand, did not have much in terms of ground setting or context, but Chuck Todd had an exclusive interview with Secretary of State, Antony Blinken. On State of the Union, Jake Tapper interviewed outgoing NYC mayor Bill de Basio and Arkansas governor Asa Hutchison on their varied approach on getting their constituents vaccinated. All of these different strategies have pros and cons that are really dependent on what your goals are as a media consumer. Plus, we have a conversation about the bombshell news that Chris Wallace will be leaving Fox News after 18 years with the network.

Robbie Martin brings on prolific foreign policy journalist/writer Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com again to talk about the increasing hysteria and fear Americans are exhibiting over China and how there is seemingly bipartisan support in DC and among the public for an aggressive stance against China. Dave and Robbie then move on to the different camps of Libertarianism, first the camp that espouses Zionist talking points, neocon rhetoric on China and wants to work with the MAGA-right and the other camp that still resists all forms of US imperialism. The discussion concludes with an assessment of where things are at with US/Russia relations in the Biden-era.

US-Russia relations over the years have been defined by altercation and disagreement. After Wednesday's summit meeting in Geneva, both Biden and Putin expressed a desire to turn the page. Also, since 2016, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs has led to thousands of killings. The International Criminal Court is now calling for an investigation of those deaths as war crimes. And, at the NATO leaders summit this week, the defense alliance said it would begin formally studying how climate change impacts security threats.
