I've never heard of anti-SLAPP laws and how they protect reporters/news agencies! A great episode to listen to if you're interested in journalism law/ethics.
A strikingly in-depth analysis of the future of Fox News in terms of free speech, advertising, and media ethics.
I have been obsessed with the Elizabeth Holmes story for years now! Anyone else following this trial?? So crazy how she managed to con so many people.
If you're interested in the #FreeBritney campaign and toxic journalism, this episode of On the Media is for you! I'd recommend skipping ahead past the impeachment trial recap (because honestly who needs to listen to more of that) and starting at about 14 minutes in!
