Shooting Star of Stupid

Shooting Star of Stupid

Lovett or Leave It - April 20, 2018 - 1:15:50

Propaganda is everywhere, from Sinclair stations to industry-funded research, from Trump tweets to the stories we tell about ourselves on Facebook and Instagram. Recorded live from Minneapolis in the midst of an historic April blizzard, Jon is joined by Professor Joanne Miller, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter III, health care expert Andy Slavitt, and friend of the pod Erin Ryan for a special show devoted to misinformation, propaganda, and how we can fight for the truth in the age of Trump. Special thanks to everybody who came out to this show. Minnesotans don't mess around.
