Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Fake news stories spread easily on social media, pushing misinformation and even prompting violence. The new cover story of Mother Jones argues that the impact is far more pervasive—Facebook is also killing real news. CEO of Mother Jones Monika Bauerlein and Editor-in-Chief Clara Jeffrey argue that “Their tools are great at helping you find content but not truth.” Monika Bauerlein joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump declaring a National Emergency, a judge ruling that Paul Manfort lied to the FBI, and Trump’s medical exam being quietly released.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.

A third of Americans having no retirement savings at all, the financial crisis of 2008 put many investments and home values in peril, and Social Security covers only part of the gap. Torrey Little Professor of Sociology, author and Interim Chancellor of UMass Boston, Katherine S. Newman, studied the state of the nation’s workforce to write Downhill from Here: Retirement Insecurity in the Age of Inequality.
