PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): So what you want to think is that maybe that Homeland wants to develop a plot and they’ve got seasons and different things. What is discouraging to hear is that there's a political agenda behind that plot. It's like we are going to make sure that we are politically correct. We're going to make sure that we portray the white man as racist and the military as wrong. I’m fine -- plot lines are plot lines and Hollywood is Hollywood, but when they try to ram political agendas down our throats and then they admit it with Chuck Todd, that's a whole another thing. 

ABBY HUNTSMAN (CO-HOST): There isn't a show that I watch today that doesn't have a political agenda, to be totally honest. 

JON SCOTT (CO-HOST): They're going to run the Boston Marathon tomorrow, right? Do we remember who the bombers of the Boston Marathon were? I mean -- just an aside to the Muslim community, if you don't want to be portrayed in a negative light, maybe don't burn people alive and set off bombs and things like that.

HEGSETH: Yeah, and point out the radicalism, and say that's not me. Which is something a lot of people have talked about, but you don't have to do it by being politically correct and saying "Oh, it's the white guys that are wrong too."
