The BradCast w/ Brad Friedman
On today's 'BradCast': Malignant narcissist Donald Trump is so pathetic that he completely made up a pretend invitation to throw out the first pitch at a Yankees game, because the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, was invited to do so. Major League Baseball has suspended the Florida Marlins' season after numerous players tested positive. If MLB and its billions of dollars can't keep its player safe, how do you suppose your underfunded local school district will do if they are ordered to re-open for in-person classes? Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is bravely risking his state's children and their teachers if it will help get Trump re-elected, despite exploding coronavirus infection and hospitalization rates among Florida's children that have increased 34% percent in the last week. The most corrupt Attorney General in U.S. history, Bill Barr, testified to the House Judiciary Committee, for the first time ever, in a contentious hearing that covered federal troops violating American's free speech rights and wreaking chaos on American streets, Barr's intercessions criminal cases on behalf of Trump's convicted felon friends, foreign interference in elections, and much more. Don Jr. was put in "Twitter Jail" for promoting dangerous disinformation about coronavirus. ZACHARY PLEAT of Media Matters discusses how his newest report shamed the nation's second largest local TV network, Sinclair Broadcasting Group, into withdrawing an episode that spread dangerously false claims about the coronavirus. Pleat explains why Sinclair's pro-Trump propaganda -- hidden in plain sight, delivered through your local TV news station -- is arguably more insidious than even Fox "News," and how rightwing propaganda is being spread over your public airwaves in dozens of states across the country.
