The April 19 episode of the Aaron Rupar Show features Dan Froomkin, founder of Press Watch. We discussed Trump’s weaponized lying and how media outlets struggle to handle it, the shortcomings of fact checking as a genre of political journalism, why the press should focus more on “why” and less on "what,” reflexively negative Biden coverage, and much more.
Audio of the conversation is available at the top of this post, or you can watch the footage below via my YouTube Page. (And please subscribe while you’re there!)
Next week’s episode will feature Minnesota political journalist J. Patrick Coolican. If you missed last week’s featuring Kat Abu, check it out here. The full archives are available here. All eight episodes remain timely, so I encourage you to check them out.
