Why TV is failing Americans, US pays ridiculous prices for drugs, and the Teamsters’ pivotal election

Film critic Dennis Broe joins Lee Camp for a lively discussion on Redacted Tonight VIP. Broe is a film critic who is well-known for analyzing the cultural impact of films, rather than providing surface-level criticism. They discuss the failures of series like ‘Space Force’, ‘House of Cards’, and ‘The Morning Show’. They also talk about his new book, ‘Diary of a Digital Plague Year: Coronavirus, Serial TV, and The Rise of The Streaming Services’. Naomi Karavani covers a recent study that shows that Americans are getting price gouged on medication, including the new Merck treatment for the coronavirus. Government funding makes the prices more controversial given that it funded the very medications Americans get for absurd prices. Finally, Anders Lee explores the upcoming Teamsters Union leadership elections and how James Hoffa Jr’s retirement means a new opportunity to make the union more militant and democratic.
