As our guest today says, “A functioning democracy depends on a shared understanding of reality” and we all have a part to play in getting the truth and the message out. In his most recent book, “Battling the Big Lie: How Fox, Facebook and the MAGA Media are Destroying America”, Dan discusses how the right wing built a massive, billionaire funded disinformation machine that was powerful enough to bend reality to win in 2016, nearly steal the 2020 election, and left unchecked, this kind of weaponized disinformation might be powerful enough to take the 2022 midterms and hand the Republicans the 2024 Presidential election. We discuss what can be done and what WE can do, to make sure that doesn’t happen. Not on our watch. We are responsible to be the progressive megaphone and encourage others to do the same.
