Can media literacy save our culture? w/ @JennPozner — #KatieSpeakShow Ep94 06/24/2017

In brief: The answer to the title question is (as usual) “sort of.” My good friend Jenn Pozner and I talk about the role the media played in not just being complicit, but in creating the narrative that put DT in a position of power to begin with. Of course, our racist, misogynistic culture held space and votes for him — but his meticulously crafted persona, which is based on a whole lot of lies, came about through a negligent, money-hungry media culture. If you’re interested in how we got here and how to prevent a repeat, Jenn’s analysis is must listen. (And her book is must read!)
