Hughey Newsome, & Anya Parampil, RT America & Bryan Pruitt, RedState joins Thom. Conservative radio host Charlie Sykes. He told Business Insider recently that any blame for the rise of Trump lies squarely at the feet of right-wing hate radio. He said, “When this is all over, we have to go back. There’s got to be a reckoning on this. We’ve created a monster… [W]e have spent 20 years demonizing the liberal mainstream media…There is a real bias. But, at a certain point you wake up and you realize you have destroyed the credibility of any credible outlet out there.” Who bears more responsibility for Trump – the mainstream media or right-wing hate radio and its more established mouthpiece, Fox So-Called News?
