Media Matters

  • Sobering reality: In June and July, Fox News was the highest-rated TV channel in the highly-prized, 8-11pm time slot. Not just on cable—all of television.
  • Expect a big spike in sales of “The Truths We Hold,” Kamala Harris’ 2019 memoir.
  • Birtherism Update: Newsweek has apologized for an op-ed written by a conservative attorney that questioned Kamala Harris’ citizenship—and VP eligibility. The apology specifically noted that the op-ed was “being used by some as a tool to perpetuate racism and xenophobia.” Even for an erstwhile media icon trying to stay relevant, this was unconscionable.
  • “The press must look past the campaign coverage that was and embrace its role as a safeguard of democracy.”—Kyle Pope, Columbia Journalism Review.
