The media’s purpose is to question dominant narratives and challenge authority, but too often today’s corporate media exists simply to regurgitate establishment talking points and run interference for powerful interests. Case in point: Business Insider writer Mia Jankowicz’s recent piece smearing Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s story revealing U.S. involvement in sabotaging the Nord Stream pipeline. Jimmy Dore Show guest host Aaron Maté and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss how pathetically bought the mainstream media is today. Plus segments on media silence over the Hersh story, the Chinese “spy” balloon and former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s admission that a peace deal over Ukraine was in the works soon after the war began but the United States blocked all negotiations. Also featuring Mischa Paullin and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden!
