Invited guest: Josh Marshall, Talking Points Memo
Turns out, the left’s spin cycle is just as gross as the right’s. From Huffington Post to Rachel Maddow’s show, stories get twisted, blown out of proportion and become campaign fodder. We’ll trace the origin of some of those lefty campaign rumors and show how, like a game of telephone, the facts were distorted along the way. This will be a crash course in media literacy, since it’s not easy to know who to trust in the partisan political ecochamber. This session also will highlight the good news, including a focus on who is doing it right.
