Devon sits down with Sharon Kann, the reproductive rights program manager at Media Matters for America. They discuss why media oversight is so crucial in this era of #FakeNews and what has changed - and what hasn't changed - about how the news covers abortion rights and reproductive justice. They also discuss Kevin Williamson's whiney WSJ article and outline who exactly is oppressed in that narrative. (Spoiler alert: it isn't Kevin Williamson)
Devon also discusses a new study that shows white Trump voters were less concerned with economic issues and more concerned about keeping their white privilege intact. (Fucking duh.) The prevailing media narrative that Hillary Clinton ignored the white working class and that's why Trump won is complete and utter bullshit.
