April 8, 2017: Partisan Reality in the Age of Trump; Phyllis Bennis on America’s Dangerous Syrian Ad

April 8, 2017: Partisan Reality in the Age of Trump; Phyllis Bennis on America’s Dangerous Syrian Ad

For decades, Republicans have not only rejected the neutral arbiters of fact — the media, the academy, science — bought sought to create their own, alternative information infrastructure. This week, we’ll speak with Vox’s Dave Roberts about a piece he wrote recently laying out how this “tribal epistemology” is playing out under a president whose mendacity is unprecedented. 

Then we’ll be joined by Phyllis Bennis, director of IPS’ New Internationalism Project and author of Isis and Syria: The New Global War on Terror, to talk about Trump’s sudden turnabout on Syria, Friday’s missile strikes, and what might happen next.
