There are very few if any media outlets and fact-checking websites that aren't beholden to a narrative. It makes reporting all the facts surrounding an issue impossible. On today's podcast, John and Steve look at how both right and left media outlets spin the news to prop up a point of view that only gives you part of the story. So-called "bad" ideas are dismissed as propaganda so that the media's agenda can be furthered. But no one is getting the whole story. The media are now social activists instead of journalists. And when that happens, the truth is always brushed aside.
If there's one thing you don't want politicized, it's life-saving drugs and the science behind them. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. Politically correct thinking is slowly taking over the world of science and it's to the detriment of not only the people it could help but also the scientists who are tasked with helping them.
