It’s no secret that corporate media have disdain for progressive activism.
Corporate-backed media repeatedly misrepresent progressive policy goals, serve as the propaganda arm for the military-industrial complex, and consistently put the interests of big corporations above the interests of regular people.
We watched as major media outlets tried to convince people that our disdain for Neera Tanden was based on sexism, racism, and mean tweets — and not her disastrous history of protecting corrupt corporate donors while battling progressive reform.
Now, as Rahm Emanuel seems ready to be nominated for an ambassadorship, we must be ready for corporate media to once again attempt to convince people that Emanuel is qualified to represent the United States abroad.
He is not.
Join RootsAction.org on Thursday, March 11, at 5 pm PT | 8 pm ET for a conversation and Q&A with Jeff Cohen, co-founder of RootsAction, founder of the progressive media watch group FAIR, and author of 'Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media’.
Bring questions, comments, and come ready to learn more about how the corporate media props up the worst elements of the Democratic party time and time again.
After the discussion, we will TAKE ACTION together, writing to our local media outlets, senators, and the White House directly, urging them to REJECT RAHM EMANUEL for ANY position in the Biden Administration.
