On Contact: The Disintegrating Media Landscape

| Resistance Report

Chris Hedges and Matt Taibbi examine how the press and the major tech platforms function as a propaganda and censorship bureau on behalf of the Democratic Party and the Biden campaign.

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to journalist and author Matt Taibbi about the rapidly disintegrating media landscape and the consequences of that disintegration.

Taibbi has been following developments since Twitter and Facebook blocked a New York Post story about a cache of emails reportedly belonging to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter, with Twitter blocking the New York Post out of its own account for over a week. The overt censorship is emblematic of the widening and dangerous partisan divide into information that hurts or promotes one political faction over another, and is now infecting nearly all news organizations.
