In NewsBusters’ latest podcast, we tackle a hot topic in our own offices: How do we feel about kneeling American Olympians? Should the Americans support them anyway … or support them so that they lose? The women’s football team which lost their opener to Sweden was greeted with some mockery from the “Brat Pack”.
And how will NBC News and Sports treat the US Olympic protesters? Geoff Dickens has released a new report reminding us of “the media’s most scandalous explosions.”
Our associate editor, Scott Whitlock, joins us in discussing how networks have downplayed the importance of how six of the Democrats from Texas who flew to DC were infected with COVID. The networks only gave him a few seconds. We also discuss Nikole Hannah-Jones claiming that “all journalism is activism” and pompous PBS star Ken Burns who thinks the timing is more ripe for division than… Civil War.
