3331 – Propaganda, Protest, & Politics w/ Mehdi Hasan

It’s Casual Friday! Sam and Emma speak with Mehdi Hasan, founder, CEO, and editor-in-chief of the new media company Zeteo, to discuss the biggest stories of the week and his new venture. First, Sam & Emma check in on Trump’s trial, where people are concerned about how he keeps falling asleep. But that doesn’t matter to South Carolina diner patrons* (*Ainsley Earhardt’s friends and family), including former South Carolina State Rep. Chip Huggins, who thinks Trump is being crucified in court. It also doesn’t apply to NewsMax’s Carl Higbie, who is ecstatic to see how much energy Trump is showing by taking a car from lower Manhattan to Trump Tower on 5th Avenue. Then Mehdi joins Sam and Emma, and they discuss how the propaganda in support of Israel appearing on news and social media is the greatest since the entire media machine threw itself behind the Iraq War in the early 2000’s. They discuss President Biden’s reactions to the campus protests, the weaponization of the word “democracy”, the baffling decision by Senate Majority Leader Schumer to reportedly partner with Speaker Johnson to invite Netanyahu to address Congress, and also check out Sen. Bernie Sanders explaining why Israel may end up being President Biden’s own version of Vietnam.

And in the Fun Half, the MR Crew check out Joe Rogan decrying out of control wokeness infiltrating college campuses, a respected Dartmouth history professor, Annelise Orleck, being forcibly arrested by police at a campus protest, Mehdi Hasan expertly dressing down Piers Morgan in a debate over the usage of the word “Intifada”, and Donald Trump pretending like he doesn’t know who RFK Jr. is when asked about him, even though they met at Trump Tower in 2016, and Trump is worried he’s going to siphon votes away from him in November. Plus, your calls & IM’s!
