Longtime Reporter Leaves NBC Saying Media Is “Trump Circus” That Encourages Perpetual War
Even senior reporters and media columnists from the major networks, who have 30-year careers working for top-tier media outlets and networks – they’re journalists that’s what they do – they’re departing the networks stating-they can’t continue to put up with this BS that the corporate media is putting down. They can no longer be a part of it and are resigning in protest – Publicly – in considerable numbers!
Listen to this guy _ this guy, William Arkin is brilliant; and has a lot to say – listen up!
“Prisoners of Donald Trump.” That’s how longtime NBC reporter and analyst William Arkin described the mainstream media in a scathing letter last week announcing he would be leaving the network, accusing the media of warmongering while ignoring the “creeping fascism of homeland security.” He issued the blistering critique after a 30-year relationship with NBC, calling for “Trump-free” media days and a reckoning about how the network encourages a state of perpetual warfare. We speak with Arkin, whose award-winning reporting has appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post. He is the author of many books, including “Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State.”
