    Amanda Moore spent a year undercover within the grassroots of the post-election Trump movement and its various subcultures, attending events and integrating herself with pockets of true believers.

    Our Modern Moral Panics (10/26/21) ft/ Michael Hobbes

    Our Modern Moral Panics (10/26/21) ft/ Michael Hobbes

    Michael Hobbes is a writer and co-host of the podcast “Maintenance Phase.” You may also recognize his voice from the acclaimed podcast “You’re Wrong About.” He joins SH!TPOST to discuss the steady stream of stories and columns from national American media about the supposed rise of an “illiberal left”—something he argues to be a modern moral panic reinforced by thin hype. Jared and Michael talk through the ways this decades-old right-wing talking point has been laundered through respectable press using the moral panic starter kit and why it’s important to push back against it.

    Big Disinfo (9/16/21) ft/ Joe Bernstein

    Joseph Bernstein is a senior reporter for BuzzFeed News. He joins SH!TPOST this week to discuss the overly simplistic story of online disinformation that many American audiences have been sold. Joe encourages those interested in understanding online disinformation to pause and recognize several fundamental issues with the way some of our current conversations have been framed. These flaws, he argues, are not an end-all to the study of disinformation; rather, he hopes that addressing them will produce better work that contributes to stronger public knowledge.

I’m in the twilight zone

So I just listened to the most recent episode on media going on the offensive and I swear I have heard this exact conversation in its inverse by right leaning “journalists”. Examples I’ve heard from the right is the Republicans don’t know how to wield culture, they are do nothings, I’ve heard lefties believe in everything and nothing, I’ve heard of smear campaigns and the inability of lefties to report the truth. You and your counterparts are the problem, not the American people. It’s the narratives you construct, the framing in your reports and your own prejudices the make you assign beliefs and moralities to large swaths of the public like groups are monoliths that can easily be segregated by race, religion, sexual orientation or whatever other dribble you people come up with that highlights our differences. You help the controlling white supremest patriarchal elite maintain control as much as the right, two sides of the same coin. Congratulations, you did it!!!!!!
