The mainstream media has sacrificed fact-based reporting in favor of promoting its own social and political agenda, says Sharyl Attkisson, author of the new book, “SLANTED: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism.”

 

Attkisson, host of the TV show “Full Measure” and a five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist, joins the podcast to explain how the deterioration of fact-based journalism began. From reporting on Black Lives Matter to the 2020 election, media outlets have become consumed with promoting a specific narrative, even if it means censoring the truth.

 

We also cover these stories:

 

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden names former Secretary of State John Kerry as his special presidential envoy for climate.
  • Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, mandates a three-week “statewide pause” due to an uptick in coronavirus cases.
  • AstraZeneca announces encouraging results in its COVID-19 vaccine trials.

 

Enjoy the show!

    Always love hearing from Ms. Attkisson. She is a treasure along with a few other real reporters.
