On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist D.C. Columnist Eddie Scarry joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his article “Corporate Media Once Again Target Ron DeSantis While Democrats Ruin Everything.”
“Any one of them on their own, a writer at the New York Times or a host on MSNBC, is not going to do too much damage but when you have them as a chorus creating a narrative and it’s everywhere,” Scarry said, “unless you happen to be watching Fox or listening to conservative radio or reading The Federalist, you are going to otherwise just be exposed to this nonstop drumbeat of COVID and death and infections and all that stuff.”
“There are some people who really do just enjoy the pandemic. They love the pandemic and they want you to love it too,” he added. The media’s malfeasance and dedication to push an agenda, especially about COVID-19, Scarry said, should push Americans to seek out alternative news sources.
“The only way I think for people to realize that that’s happening to them, they’re not getting the truth and they are more and more going to have to seek out alternative sources of information,” he noted. “They are not going to get it from the big entertainment corporate media. They just are not going to get it there.”
