How did the dominant corporate media cover Joe Biden’s first 100 days as President? And how has media coverage of Biden differed from that given to Donald Trump? Mickey is joined by Emil Marmol and Nolan Higdon to discuss a forthcoming article the three of them wrote on these topics for a forthcoming book to be published in the UK. Then Jennifer Lyons speaks about her new academic study of left-populist podcasts, and how their perspectives differ not only from those of legacy media, such as cable TV, but are changing the landscape of how and where people get their news.
Nolan Higdon teaches media studies at California State University, East Bay. He and Emil Marmol are frequent contributors to Project Censored. Their forthcoming article will be titled, “Returning to Neoliberal Normalcy.” Jennifer Lyons teaches History at Diablo Valley College; her forthcoming article on left-populist media was coauthored with Nolan Higdon and will be published in an academic communications journal this fall.
