Your Call: Media coverage of white supremacy

Nov 18, 2016

On the November 18th edition  Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of Steve Bannon, former chief editor of the extreme right news and propaganda site, Breitbart.com -- and now Donald Trump's chief strategist.

We will also talk about the President-elect's tweets against what he calls "false" reporting in the New York Times -- and the impact fake news may have had on the election.  Join us live at 10am on Your Call, with Matt Martin, and you.

Guests:

Jeff Sharlet, associate professor of literary journalism at Dartmouth, and author of several books, including C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy , the best-seller The Family, and his latest Radiant Truths

Joshua Holland, contributor to The Nation and fellow with The Nation Institute.
