Steve Krakauer & Fixing The Media Bias Problem
On this episode, Ben is joined by former CNN Executive, Steve Krakauer, to discuss his new book,21 Uncovered: How the Media Got Cozy with Power, Abandoned Its Principles, and Lost the People. They discuss how this bias came about, and what can be done to improve mainstream newsrooms’ covering of critical issues going forward.
Later, Ben explains how an echo chamber of left-leaning newsrooms led to the false labeling of the Wuhan lab leak theory as a ‘right-wing conspiracy.’
