On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to Matt Taibbi journalist and author, about the rapidly disintegrating media landscape and its consequences.
Taibbi has been following developments since Twitter and Facebook blocking 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.
