    Last month, Amber Athey of the Daily Caller joined Fault Lines to discuss her reporting about a hostile work environment involving Chris Matthews and MSNBC. On today's show, Athey rejoins the program to talk about her follow up report.

    Garland and Lee also talk with the Salt Lake Tribune's DC Bureau Chief, Thomas Burr, about Senator Orrin Hatch's decision to retire from the US Senate. Since 2012, Mitt Romney has appeared eager to return to public life. Is Hatch's Senate seat now Romney's for the taking?
