The Dark Origins Of Don Lemon’s Southern Stereotype (Pt.1)| Michael Malice | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Michael Malice (Author and Media Personality) about the power and manipulation by corporate mainstream media. Michael Malice is an author and host of the “Your Welcome with Michael Malice” podcast. His most recent book is “The New Right”. Michael shares his thoughts and reacts to a clip of a Don Lemon hosted CNN panel mocking Trump supporters. The viral clip features ex-GOP strategist Rick Wilson, and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali. In the clip Rick Wilson mocks the ‘credulous boomer rube demo’ that supports the president. Don Lemon then laughs uncontrollably in what some see as proof that CNN has no problem mocking half the country. Michael reveals the surprising dark origins of the southern rube stereotype. He also discusses the way the media portrayed Joe Rogan when he was seen as endorsing Bernie Sanders and how the media use framing to get the viewer to think of certain personalities in a nefarious way. Media will intentionally use certain language to train their audience what to think. He feels that this is the key difference between having a bias and having an agenda. He points out that by them doing this they have alienated fans of people like Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang, Joe Rogan, Kobe Bryant, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Don Imus. He also talks about how there is an asymmetry between truth and lying and that the media is destroying it’s trust far faster than it can be regained.
