No partisan rote. Intellectual honesty and argument merit are the touchstones of The McLaughlin Group. From 1982 until his death in August 2016, John McLaughlin hosted this iconic syndicated half-hour weekly public affairs program with 52 original episodes produced each year.

The McLaughlin Group is your weekly guide to the politics, policies, and personalities governing our nation. The McLaughlin Group relaunch is moderated by John McLaughlin’s mentee, Tom Rogan, joined weekly by McLaughlin Group legends Pat Buchanan, Eleanor Clift, and Clarence Page. A rotating fourth guest panelist will join the group weekly. Friends who disagree, the group revel in intellectual battle and good natured humor. Viewers want charisma and viewpoints, but not shout-festivals of narrow partisanship. This is that show.
