CNN’s Brian Stelter and Brianna Keilar say it’s striking Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto would say that the Covid-19 vaccination saved his life while the network’s prime time hosts speak out against mandates.
Brian Stelter says there are two competing storylines about Steve Bannon’s indictment. Abigail Tracy says the right’s framing “that it’s a witch hunt or going after enemies of Donald Trump is really disingenuous and dishonest.” Zachary Petrizzo also weighs in.
Brian Stelter speaks with Rashad Robinson, one of the co-chairs of Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder, and previews some of the group’s recommendations for improving social media transparency and holding “superspreaders” of lies accountable.
Brian Stelter says Steve Bannon’s podcast is a “nexus of political nonsense.” Zachary Petrizzo, who listens to Bannon’s show every day, says he believes Bannon’s extreme rhetoric “is going to continue to increase” and Bannon will use his indictment “as an opportunity to grow his base.”
CNN’s Brianna Keilar speaks with David Schoen, the attorney for Trump associate Steve Bannon, about his client’s argument to invoke executive privilege in the January 6 investigation over conversations he had with people other than the former president.
CNN’s Brianna Keilar pays tribute to former Staff Sergeant Wesley Black, who died after a battle with cancer which his oncologist said was linked to burn pits used by the military to burn trash in Iraq and Afghanistan. Black’s story was previously covered by CNN.
