The media landscape during the Biden administration

I'm scheduled to go on the Dave Congalton Hometown Radio show on 920 KVEC shortly to talk about the media in a Biden administration (some of which I discussed in the post below) and what conservative news sources I reference.

First, the conservative news sources I reference on a regular basis.

Some specifics on the media landscape

There are some media stories that we may touch on or discuss on the air.

First, the Washington Post attempted to memory-hole an unflattering anecdote about Vice President Kamala Harris, but backtracked after it was exposed.

There's this pitiful Newsweek fact check from last week that I critiqued. For the record, they have not contacted me regarding my request for a retraction.

One-time conservative Max Boot is calling for the Fairness Doctrine to be revived and applied to cable news companies, specifically, Fox News.

Former New York Times public editor, now the media columnist at The Washington Post, Margaret Sullivan says "Fox News is a hazard to our democracy."

Salon does a hit job on Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR.). Newsweek goes back and stealth-edits its own reporting to align with the "new truth."

And maybe some cancel culture

The Niskanen Center's Will Wilkinson gets sacked for a bad joke, months after his boss made a worse one.

The New York Times sacked freelance editor Lauren Wolfe. Was it because of an innocuous tweet?

The audio from our talk is below:

Aside from the "rules are for the Little People" angle, stuff like this really drives home the point that masks are more like an armband on your face, signaling tribal loyalty.

If Breed was actually concerned about Covid, and actually believed masks worked, she wouldn't forget. https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1439962097958412288

San Francisco Mayor @LondonBreed defends violating her indoor mask mandate while partying at a club:

“I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask."

Fauci should have stopped doing public interviews over a year ago. He's repeatedly done this thing where he pretends (incorrectly) that the science conclusively supports whatever policy position he is advocating for at the time and it leaves a lot of people doubting the science. https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1439627772478070791

Updated Fauci flip flops:

— COVID being a big deal
— Social distancing
— Masks (flip-flop-flipped)
— Schools re-opening
— T-cell immunity
— Biden admin “starting from scratch” on vaccines
— His wearing a mask as “theater”
— Covid origins
— Covid booster shots
