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

Trump and Trump Jr. amplified conspiracy theories and bogus medical claims when they posted about Stella Immanuel’s viral video containing claims that Hydroxychloroquine cures COVID-19 and that masks are useless. The Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer digs into the misinformation peddler, unearthing her other claims about sex demons, “homosexual terrorism,” and other out of this world claims. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

While the pandemic continues to spread and the misinformation from the Trump administration continues, the press is still reluctant to question Trump’s behavior and its root causes. Associate Professor of Journalism at New York University and the author of PressThink.org, Jay Rosen, joins me on the show today to discuss the lack of scrutiny on Trump and the myth that he has “changed his tone.”  

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last week a lot has happened, from Attorney General William Barr testifying before congress, the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that a church cannot flout COVID-19 restrictions, and more. Mark returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and so much more.
