Leon Krauze is a news anchor on Univision’s KMEX station in Los Angeles. His writing and other work on U.S. politics and immigration has been featured by such leading publications as The New Yorker, The Daily Beast, Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, Foreign Policy, Newsweek, the Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post. Krauze formerly held the Wallis Annenberg Chair in Journalism at USC.
Krauze reflects on the unhealthy state of the American news media in the Age of Trump and beyond. He also shares why the country’s reporters and journalists need to ground their writing and truth-telling in the life experiences of everyday people – and not just the insular voices of their peer group and the country’s elites.
Krauze also explains why the American corporate news media was and continues to be addicted to stories about the "white working class” instead of focusing on nonwhite people and others.
Chauncey DeVega does some reflecting and contemplation during a blizzard about the winter of discontent that is America’s failing democracy, Trump’s impeachment and rigged “trial”, and how the Republican Party is now full-on endorsing right-wing terrorism and other political violence.
And Chauncey has a great time exposing the hypocrisy of the apparent white supremacist Republican congresswoman anti-Semite conspiracist Christian fascist Trump cult member Marjorie Taylor Greene and her alleged extramarital affairs including one with a tantric sex guru bodybuilder sword master video game cosplayer who looks like “Zangief” from the Street Fighter series.
