Today’s episode of NPR’s Up First does a good job explaining how badly the national media in the US is failing the electorate in the run up to the 2024 presidential election. Trump is very publicly spewing fascist rhetoric. He is not being coy about it. The quote that stuck out to me from the podcast was, “the media’s job is to be objective, not balanced.” There is no “both sides” required in this discussion. It’s some truly scary shit and it should be reported accurately as such.
