2360 - "Officials Say...": How Police Departments Plant Misinformation in the Press w/ Alexandria Neason

Michael Brooks hosts Alexandria Neason, staff writer at the Columbia Journalism Review, to discuss her piece "Officials Say..." and her reporting on the relationship between the media and police. On today's show: Ben Shapiro says left wants "systemic unjustice," insane circular logic arrives at "there is no systemic racism" and things that are "legally racist" are so "on behalf of minorities." Alexandria Neason, staff writer at the Columbia Journalism Review, joins Michael to discuss her piece "Officials Say..." and her reporting on the relationship between the media and police. The history of police propaganda and how the cops have worked with the mainstream press to create their own reality and enforce white supremacy. The white press' handling of the 1955 Emmett Till story as case study. How the police continue to leak their own info to the press in cases like that of Laquan McDonald, who was fatally shot by Chicago police in 2014. The reckoning that journalists are currently having with regard to their complicity in how they cover the police. On the fun half: The incomplete picture the May jobs report paints of Americans' economic well being. Asked about Trump tweet on OAN report about 75-year-old in Buffalo, Kayleigh McEnany says Trump is just raising questions. Fascist Brian Kilmeade: If cops show weakness they "will be steamrolled." After Elliot Engel tries to call out progressive challenger Jamal Bowman, Bowman says he's a school principal in Engel's district, hasn't seen him because Engel lives in Maryland. American Indian movement tears down Columbus statue at Minnesota statehouse. Black conservative at Trump roundtable says Don Lemon and Joy Reid are more dangerous than drug dealers. Steve Mnuchin says there's not much distinction between indoor and outdoor spread of Covid. Dave Rubin says secularism is running rampant, and that's why he's exploring religion.
