On the Monday version of the Podcast, we discover the media darling Ilhan Omar. On Sunday’s Dependable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter invited her on to debate immigration and the media. Stelter did not query her. He started: “I am curious to listen to the way you suppose immigration needs to be framed within the media.”
How would a celebrated Somalian refugee/feminist/Muslim leftist “body” the narrative? Omar replied that “once we floor the dialog with who’s authorized, who is illegitimate, who’s a legal, who’s alien, then we permit for racist rhetoric to take maintain.”
Now within the opening months of her sophomore time period in Congress, journalists fall at her toes. She will inform Stelter that the “hysteria” of the Republicans creates a torturous state of affairs for “the least lucky of our immigration inhabitants.”
A couple of days again, Omar obtained a very sympathetic interview from Morning Version host Steve Inskeep. He requested if America’s been a drive for good on this planet. She would say American has “no successes” to boast about. She’s been celebrated on the Late Present by Stephen Colbert.
Now think about a brand new freshman Republican lady representing Minnesota, Rep. Michelle Fischbach. By no means heard of her? She’s white, born in Minnesota, and a conservative. By no means thoughts!
Talking of Stelter, he additionally had a section with two feminine Asian journalists. As soon as once more, Stelter did not have a query for Connie Chung. He mentioned “I have been hoping to listen to this all week. Your evaluation of how the media protection, how the media approaches anti-Asian violence in the US.” Chung shot again “anti- Asian hate began the second it got here out of President Trump’s mouth. The second he known as COVID-19 the China virus or Kung flu.” Michelle Ye Hee Lee of The Washington Publish complained the media had been “dashing” to explain the Atlanta shootings as not racially motivated (as a result of that is what the suspect mentioned).
