Make 'Em Mad (4/1/21) ft/ Parker Molloy
From "cancel culture" narratives to outrages-of-the-week, right-wing media is hellbent on keeping their audience fuming. But for what?
Lil Nas X sneakers, Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, and more; right-wing media in the U.S. has spent the Biden era so far hopping from manufactured outrage to manufactured outrage, riling up their audiences along the way. What was once a hallmark of YouTube grifters seeking clicks has seemingly consumed the mainstream GOP. Media Matters editor-at-large Parker Molloy has been writing about this phenomenon for years and she joins the show to explain the trends and what they mean for the rest of us.
