100% Unique Media Insider Content No Filler!

I love the Mediaite website and podcast. So impressed with the curated information on what the media is up to. This is important as it is so easy to be manipulated if one isn’t aware of all the spins from left and right which seek to engage us but often not inform citizens. Mediaite is a new tool on my daily tracking and fact checking. Thank you for creating this vital service.

Loving it

Super quick and interesting episodes with some A list guests! Aidan does a nice job getting the most out of his guests in a short amount of time.

Economic Populism

Trump rhetorically only is an economic populist. His policies still favor upper income people.
