I don’t listen to a lot of podcasts, but I’ve listened to The Majority Report for almost 8 years. It mixes long form interviews, in-depth analysis, and comedy into an excellent weekday program. I was pretty shocked to see what members of the alt right have been doing to silence progressive voices who speak out against the Trump agenda:
What makes this more important is to consider the role that The Majority Report plays in independent progressive media. Channels like The Young Turks and organizations such as Democracy Now are important media entities that operate outside of the US mainstream media. Sam Seder isn’t just a random comedian with a Twitter following–he’s representative of something much more important.
Seeing concerted efforts to silence commentators such as Sam Seder should be shocking to everyone who cares about independent media.
