Episode 536: Reopening America Too Soon?; Big Banks Can Take Your Stimulus Check; Undercounting Covid-19 Deaths

On today’s show…

David Dayen, from the America Prospect, will explain how big banks can get a hold of your stimulus check before you have a chance to use it.

Nation national-affairs correspondent Jeet Heer will explain why "Undercounting Covid-19 Deaths Is a Deadly Mistake.” And why keeping the death toll artificially low allows Trump to push for a premature end to the lockdown.

And Heather "Digby" Parton will help break down the news of the week.
