Jordan Chariton On The Collapse Of The Mainstream Media”

In this episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp talks with Jordan Chariton, a political reporter for The Young Turks and author of the new book “Corporate Con Job: How Mainstream Media Aids the Oligarchy.” Lee and Jordan talk about how corporate control of the media ensures that whatever airs is what makes money, rather than what informs the public, meaning that now daily blunders from Trump are their cash cow. They also discuss how the Democratic Party continues to ignore polls and trends that indicate the wants of their people because they don’t want to relinquish corporate donations. Next, Lee reviews USA Today, a paper which is featuring front-page stories on O.J. Simpson's parole and the advances in smart home inventions such as Google Home and Amazon Echo. What the newspaper doesn't tell you is how Simpson's parole has little impact on American lives and that there's nothing to suggest that agencies such as the CIA and NSA won’t use the home devices to spy on you. Lee shows how USA Today is another example of journalism that does little to be a public service and more to be a shill for corporations that own them for a profit. Meanwhile, horrifying truths about our society - including a headline highlighting the fact that half of American renters can’t afford the units they’re living in. All this and more on the latest Redacted Tonight VIP.
