    After Trump, does truth matter?: A conversation with CNN’S Jake Tapper

    After Trump, does truth matter?: A conversation with CNN’S Jake Tapper

    Jake Tapper, chief Washington correspondent for CNN, returns to “Inside the Hive” for an in-depth conversation on the state of the media in these bitter, waning days of the Trump era. While Trump and his legal team spin outlandish conspiracies to reverse the legitimate election of Joe Biden, Tapper separates fact from fiction, casts skepticism on a Trump “coup,” and considers the long-term damage Trump’s war on reality has done to American life. How much is the media—including CNN—culpable for his rise? Will his political influence stay alive or decline when he finally leaves office? And will the media, addicted to the ratings his chaos provides, continue to empower him with attention?

    Are we on the sunny side of the street yet?

    Are we on the sunny side of the street yet?

    On this week’s podcast, cohosts Emily Jane Fox and Joe Hagan game out the political future of the Trump machine in the aftermath of Joe Biden’s decisive electoral victory. While Trump drums up hysteria about a coup to fan the passions of his minions—prepping, no doubt, for a right-wing media company to challenge Fox News—the rest of the media faces a reckoning: Will we continue to breathe life into Trump’s reality show by indulging his 24/7 madness with cameras and microphones? Will Jared and Ivanka manage to sneak back into Upper East Side society or will they be pecked to death by angry socialites? As the nation teeters between the political chaos of Trumpism and a cooler, saner Bidenesque calm, we have a painful postmortem to conduct, but also, for the first time in a long time, hope.

    Series Finale of the Trump Show?

    Series Finale of the Trump Show?

    On this week’s episode of Inside the Hive, co-hosts Emily Jane Fox and Joe Hagan ask the question: If this reality-TV presidency was scripted, how might it end? Expanding on a special project published in the Hive this week—in which Susan Orlean, Tom Perrotta, Anthony Scaramucci, Alexandra Petri and others imagine a Trump-era “finale”—the hosts bring in special guest Lee Eisenberg, former head writer of The Office (and Hive-famous financée to Fox), to discuss how a writer’s room in Hollywood might build a bookend to the series—or, as the case may be, a cliffhanger to another season of Trumpian hell. In the spirit of both hope and realism, the hosts offer advice for surviving the next week and begin (carefully) imagining post-election possibilities for a nation desperate to wean itself from Trump’s show-and-awe dopamine hits.

OMG: Sam Harris show so tedious

Listening to Sam Harris bloviate about his extensive thirty years of deep meditation is tedious. His asinine verbal tick dismissive “rights” that pass for his expertise as a neuroscientist are mind numbing. Every. single. sentence. Right?

He’s quick to cast dispersion on others. After years of listening to his self aggrandizing podcast where he never NEVER backs up any assertions with actual data. I have never heard him talk about actual science.

oh, but he’s stepped BACK from twitter. he’s so elevated. wow. kept his account around long enough for promotion? professional necessity?

good podcast. but sam harris is no genius. he just talks a lot. booooooorrrrriiiing.

Was much better with Nick Bolton as host

The current team is pleasant enough but pretty pedestrian. I used to listen no matter who was the guest but now only listen selectively.
