A person's choice to deny reality, as a way to avoid a psychologically uncomfortable truth
(full episode notes are at https://Patreon.com/theLFShow) When it came to the midterms, mainstream white pundits got a lot wrong that local, Black, Brown and BIPOC media got right, and they're still missing many important stories. That's the message from this roundtable of journalists we call Meet the BIPOC Press, a monthly feature of the Laura Flanders Show. What do the money media's hits and misses tell us about what journalists need to be doing better — or differently — in the weeks and months ahead? For this conversation, Laura is joined by S. Mitra Kalita, the publisher of Epicenter-NYC and co-founder of URL Media, a network of Black and Brown community news outlets that partners with the Laura Flanders Show every month; Habib Rahman, the cofounder of TBN24, the first Bangladeshi 24/7 live television channel in the US, and Stephanie Williams, the executive editor of the IE Voice and Black Voice News serving Southern California. How did their outlets meet the needs of their constituents and voters? Some of the answers are pretty surprising."Mainstream media is covering misinformation and they're covering the polls. They're not really covering abortion, climate change, your garbage pickup, your kid's PTA.” - S. Mitra Kalita“We have a small network, TBN24. Compared to MSNBC or CNN or Fox we are minute, but they don't understand the power of local journalism, local stations and the influence that we have on the local people.” - Habib Rahman“Looking within our communities we should be reading the pulse of what's happening there, and if it's contrary to the polls, we should use our voices and speak up and say, that's not what we're seeing in my community, regardless of what the polls say.” - Stephanie WilliamsGuests:S.

Nearly four hundred election deniers ran in the midterms, and not only did the highest-profile among them lose their races, they even willingly conceded. Does this mean that Donald Trump's “Stop the Steal” movement has run out of political steam? Or is it merely shapeshifting for a new era? Rachel Monroe, who has been reporting from conspiracy-ridden Maricopa County, Arizona, and Sue Halpern, who has written extensively about the fragility of our voting machines, join Tyler Foggatt to discuss the challenges of building public trust in our elections.
What is “Denialism”? Jean Goodwin, JD, PhD, SAS Institute Distinguished Professor of Rhetoric & Technical Communication, NC State Website | Twitter: @jeangoodwin and @PublicSci_NCSU What drives polarization on contested issues like GMOs? We'll discuss one potentially surprising factor. Abstract Public debates have been trending increasingly bitter and polarized since the 1990s, increasingly so over the last decade. Science-heavy debates on issues like climate change, pandemic policies and of course agricultural biotechnology are no exception. In this “work in progress” presentation I review recent scholarship on the extent, drivers and implications of polarization in the two most studied situations: US politics (liberal v. conservative, Democrat v. Republican) and climate change. I close by inviting participants to reflect on the significance of this lit review for “denialism,” “anti-science,” “war on science” et sim. in the GMO debates. Speaker Bio A twisty path through law and classical rhetoric has led Dr. Jean Goodwin to an interest in scientists' participation in civic controversies. As a member of the Leadership in Public Science cluster, “I not only ‘think' but also ‘do' that,” helping with programming intended to foster commitment to, and capacity for, public-facing science at NC State University. Goodwin received her bachelor's degree in mathematics and her J.D. from the University of Chicago, and her Ph.D. in communication arts from the rhetoric program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to more than 25 years in the classroom introducing undergraduates to the rhetorical tradition, she has mentored graduate students across a variety communication subfields and academic departments. Her essays have been published in international journals in communication, philosophy and the sciences. She has served as a consultant on initiatives by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Union of Concerned Scientists to define the appropriate roles of scientists as advocates.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 1: 3:05pm- According to reporting from The Intercept's Ken Klippenstein and Lee Fang, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) attempted to “influence tech platforms” via “a formalized process for government officials to directly flag content on Facebook or Instagram and request that it be throttled or suppressed through a special Facebook portal that requires a government or law enforcement email to use.” Klippenstein and Fang write that “disinformation” was not clearly defined in the leaks obtained—though, DHS was planning to target stories regarding the origins of COVID-19 and the Biden Administration's troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. 3:20pm- After voting in Delaware over the weekend, President Joe Biden addressed the home invasion and assault on the husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Biden linked election denialism to the violent attack that left Paul Pelosi with a fractured skull. Earlier this month, Hillary Clinton accused Republicans, and the Supreme Court, of conspiring to steal the 2024 Presidential Election. Will Biden remain consistent and condemn members of his own political party? 3:45pm- Should the federal government decide what is, and is not, “disinformation”—ultimately censoring stories that don't meet their subjective definition?
This episode contains strong language. Hundreds of candidates on the ballot in November still deny that President Biden won in 2020 — a level of denialism that is fueling harassment and threats toward election workers. Few have experienced those attacks as viscerally as election workers in Arizona. Today, we speak with the top election official in the state's largest county. Guest: Stephen Richer, the recorder of Maricopa County in Arizona. Background reading: Election officials are on alert as voting begins for midterm elections, the biggest test of the American election system since former President Donald J. Trump's lies about the 2020 results launched an assault on the democratic process.Over 370 Republican candidates have cast doubt on the 2020 election despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, according to a New York Times investigation.For more information on today's episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Transcripts of each episode will be made available by the next workday.
CNN Tonight's coverage continues with the panel discussing the possibility of election denialism affecting the midterms, Trump's January 6 subpoena and the response of his legal team, Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake softening her stance on accepting election results, and the case of former daycare employees being charged with child abuse after an adult is filmed using a “Scream” mask to terrify toddlers.Republican strategist and pollster Frank Luntz joins to discuss the intensifying anger around the rejection of our political process and the challenges of ensuring America's democratic process is trusted. Plus, radio hosts Joe Madison and Mike Broomhead tell Laura about what their listeners are saying ahead of the midterms.Hosted by Laura CoatesTo learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

The Academy of Science of SA (Assaf) has said Mbeki's comments on AIDs would set back decades of work done by health professionals, scientists and other sectors to mitigate the stigma and denialism associated with the pandemic.

On June 5th, 1981, hospitals in Los Angeles, California, began to notice an alarming trend of patients developing pneumocystis pneumonia. At the time, medical experts were puzzled by what was causing these severe symptoms. By 1982 the Center for Disease Control (CDC) finally identified the cause of the deadly disease that had become prominent among the LGBTQ+ community and drug abusers, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, also known as AIDs. However, as the birth of HIV studies began, so did the cognitive virus of HIV/AIDs denialism that would cost the lives of people infected with HIV and the people promoting these ideas. In today's episode, Nelson revisits the history of the HIV/AIDs denialism movement, assesses some of the conspiratorial fallacies, and debunks Peter Duesberg's claims who has sacrificed his academic integrity to protect his ego.

Primary results last night in South Carolina, Nevada and across the country seem to show — once more — Trump's undying influence over the Republican Party. Jon Ralston, CEO of the Nevada Independent, and Bridget Bowman, NBC News political deputy editor, join Chuck to preview some of the midterm's marquee general elections — now just taking shape.
Like most people, shows like CSI, Law and Order, or even Dexter, may have you convinced that the science used to convict people is airtight. Everything from bite marks, blood spatter, and even finger prints, must be scientifically valid...right? What if I told you, almost all of it is predicated on junk science and the failings of the legal system to catch it? Today's guest is on the show to highlight this and the infrastructure that has been created to support wrongful convictions. Chris Fabricant is the Director of Strategic Litigation at the Innocence Project and the author of Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System. In this episode, we will go over some of the findings in Chris' book that help us to understand how the legal system allowed bad science to become such a powerful tool to wrongfully convict thousands of Americans. Giving his solutions to the junk science problem, Chris will leave you with the hope that it will one day be no more. Key Topics and Takeaways: Hunter's definition of a wrongful conviction. [6:25] How junk science got into the criminal system. [13:37] The issue with pattern matching. [23:09] Society's strong desire to punish. [31:12] How the Supreme Court has played a role in wrongful convictions and mass incarceration. [37:06] The principle of finality. [38:03] Denialism around actual innocence. [47:17] Promoting scientific literacy among lawyers. [1:06:25] Guest: Chris Fabricant, Director of Strategic Litigation, Innocence Project Resources: 2009 National Academy of Sciences Report 2016 PCAST Forensic Science Report Buy Chris's Book Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System Memorable Quotes: “I don't think people actually want to live in the type of society that our legal principles say we should be living in.” (4:50, Hunter) “What we know about the law as compared to science is that the law is stable.” (22:17, Chris) “In reality, crime usually happens. Police get together, form their suspect. And then, a lot of the analysis of the evidence is then with that suspect in mind.” (27:39, Hunter) “Science should always be objective, it should be separated from the adversarial process.” (29:40, Chris) “There's widespread scientific illiteracy in the bar.” [50:59, Chris) “Once you're accused unless you can afford really, really good counsel, you're kind of fucked.” (59:56, Hunter) Contact Hunter Parnell: firstname.lastname@example.org Instagram Twitter www.publicdefenseless.com

“Real experts are wrong and will admit that they're wrong. Actually one of the ways that you can identify an expert is, you can search them admitting to being wrong at some point in time. Because, you know, people who are never wrong aren't experts, they're jerks.” - Dr. Mark Hoofnagle In episode 168, Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer welcomes Dr. Mark Hoofnagle to the podcast. Dr. Hoofnagle is assistant professor of surgery in the section of Acute Critical Care Surgery at the Washington University in St Louis. He has been writing about critical thinking and science denialism since 2007. In this episode, he explains the many ways that the public is duped by misinformation, why people are so susceptible to misinformation and what, as doctors, we can do when our patients believe something other than the correct science. He also gives us tips for meaningful communication with patients or anyone in our lives who may be misinformed. Mark Hoofnagle MD/PhD trained at University of Virginia School of Medicine for medical school, University of Maryland Medical Center for General Surgery and University of Pennsylvania for Trauma and critical care and is now assistant professor of surgery in the section of Acute Critical Care Surgery at the Washington University in St Louis. He researches Deep Venous Thrombosis in trauma and gun violence at Washington University, and has written about critical thinking and denialism since 2007. His essay on “What is Denialism” on Scienceblogs from 2007 created framework for understanding the public dissemination of anti-science narratives, has been cited in the International Journal of Public Health and Nature, and provides context for understanding current disinformation and misinformation campaigns.

We talk about some of the many problems in the Soviet Union and various historical narratives about what went wrong and what lead to it's demise.

On March 27th, 2022, the 94th Oscar's was hosted by Chris Rock. In a segment that will be remembered in the years to come. Rock directed a joke towards Jada Smith, which initially was received well by her husband Will Smith, but was quickly interpreted as disrespectful. As a result, Will Smith got on stage and slapped Chris Rock. And while the news of this event is trending in pop culture. Conspiracy theorists have wasted little time figuring out the legitimacy of the altercation and its true intentions. The moment was staged to distract us from Joe Biden's low approval rating, vaccine deaths, and the Nazification of Ukraine. Whatever the conspiracy theory, nothing is as it seems, and everything is a false flag operation. In today's episode, I discuss my opinion of the event and assess the various conspiracy theories, some of which involve the death and cloning of Will Smith.

When Aids began to emerge in the USA and Europe in the 1980s, South Africa was a fractured country, divided by Apartheid. During this time, the ruling National Party seemed disinterested in preventing a disease which was mainly affecting black people and gay men. The fall of Apartheid and the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela didn't improve the situation - the country's first black president was overwhelmed with rebuilding a fragile nation, and the problem of HIV-Aids was pushed down the list of government priorities. But perhaps the most malignant factor shaping South Africa's response to the Aids crisis, was the influence of President Thabo Mbeki, who bought into conspiracies and misinformation, propagated by a fervent Aids denialism movement.

Julie is a herbalist by trade, a homebirther, a feminist, a doula, a self proclaimed ‘non-vaxxer', and a devout Christian who has found her way out of a fundamentalist faith. In this episode she joins me to share her observations about the roots of conspiracy theories and deliberate coronavirus misinformation campaigns. We begin with a look into the infiltration of the alternative left by far-right political groups, specifically through the foothold they have found in the existing anti vaccination sentiment. Julie shares her journey to exiting fundamentalist faith, of living in Hong Kong during the SARS epidemic, and of her close observation of the rise of conspiracy thinking and deliberate misinformation that has unfolded during the Covid-19 pandemic. We discuss our own Covid-19 vaccination choices, and some pieces around living and thriving in a time of increasing global crisis.

One of the most frustrating aspects of the last 18 or so months as we've dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic has been the rampant misunderstanding of the scientific process. We've heard "trust the science" over and over again, but what does that even mean? What do people think of when they read scientific research — if they even read it at all? And what nuance is missing in our discussions about science? My guests this week, Gale Sinatra and Barbara Hofer, co-authored a book to specifically address these gaps in our scientific understanding. Gale is a professor of education and psychology at the University of Southern California and Barbara is a professor of psychology emerita at Middlebury College. Their book is titled "Science Denial: Why it happens and what to do about it," and within it, Gale and Barbara not only help shed light on the details that are so often misunderstood in our knowledge of the scientific process and its goals, but also offer up actionable ways to bridge the divides.

Sometimes it seems like the only reason we haven't had meaningful action on climate change is because of the decades-long effort to mislead the public. But is that true? Just how important is climate denialism? In this 3rd installment of our explainer series, Aaron Strong helps us tackle that thorny question.
In this episode, I spoke to John Cook who, for almost a decade and a half, has tirelessly tried to raise awareness of the seriousness of climate change, to highlight the consensus view among climate scientists, and to combat climate change denialism. In 2007 he founded the website, Skeptical Science, which is an invaluable resource for all those interested in a readily accessible summary of the evidence for anthropogenic global warming and rebuttals to all the major, and even minor, talking points promoted by those who persist in denying the evidence for human-mediated climate change. He first earned a degree in physics and later a PhD in cognitive psychology and has previously held academic posts as a researcher in climate change communication at the University of Queensland and George Mason University, among other institutions. When I spoke to him, he was about to take up a new position at Monash University in his native Australia. John is perhaps best known for a paper he co-authored in 2013 showing that 97% of climate scientists agree humans are behind the global warming trend measured since the late 1700s. Naturally, due to its prominence in his career, we discussed this paper and some of the reactions to it, but explored many other topics as well. These included his opinion on the defining features of the scientific method, a brief summary of how we know that humans are behind the climate change trend currently observed globally, tactics adopted by those who deny climate change, leading to a discussion of the FLICC model that he conceptualised highlighting the chief methods employed by denialists, Cook's contention that science denial is essentially consensus denial, whether we are inevitably doomed to a future resembling a post-apocalyptic Mad Max-style hellscape, his opinion about whether the climate crisis is inextricably bound up with the economic imperatives of capitalism, the claim increasingly made by scientists that reducing meat consumption is a way to curb climate change, and whether we should think seriously about limiting population growth. In addition, I asked him about whether humans are even psychologically equipped to face up to an unprecedented threat such as climate change, which is widely, although unevenly, distributed across the world and demands taking into account long time scales and future generations. Despite the doom and gloom aspects of this topic, which as you can probably tell I did not shy away from in the slightest, John remains optimistic and urged everyone to try to do what they can to make a positive difference. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with someone who communicates his insights clearly and carefully, and displays a refreshing humility in admitting when he is not fully knowledgeable about a topic. He embodies the kind of intellectual honesty and fundamental decency we need more of in this world.

"There's this sort of co-creation of disinformation" about the 2020 election, resulting in a "really powerful false narrative of voter fraud that's going to be very hard to correct," Kate Starbird says. Starbird, an associate professor at the University of Washington and a co-founder of the Center for an Informed Public, calls this "participatory disinformation" and says propaganda is most effective "when it's coming from people you trust." Brian Stelter also asks about Starbird's work studying "crisis informatics" and online rumors. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
Why do people choose science when it's convenient for them? How can we (as a society) move beyond talking about racism only when it's fashionable and engaging in performative allyship? Why was 2020 the kick in the dick we all needed? Big questions that we are deep diving into today with Jo Lorenz, a writer, podcaster and activist pushing for climate action, social justice and sustainability. In this podcast episode, we tackle choosing to live in joy and not the shit, the real power behind politicians, unlearning your own inherent racism and how to be a good ally. It's time to live wide awake.

Crucial climate negotiations loom in 2021. Despite the incredible disruption caused by COVID-19, the work of the climate policymakers, researchers and activists is not, in any way, on hold. It is important to flag that this interview with one of UCLs leading climatologists was recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020. Nevertheless, this lively conversation ranging from climate change to green capitalism remains as pertinent today as ever. Mark Maslin FRGS, FRSA is a Professor of Climatology at University College London. His areas of scientific expertise include causes of past and future global climate change and its effects on the global carbon cycle, biodiversity, rainforests and human evolution. He also works on monitoring land carbon sinks using remote sensing and ecological models and international and national climate change policies. In addition to advisory positions with the Global Cool Foundation, the Sopria-Steria Group and the Cheltenham Science Festival Advisory Committee, Mark has written 8 books, and over 30 articles. His popular book “Climate Change: A Very Short Introduction” by Oxford University Press is now in its third edition and has sold over 40,000 copies. Mark was also a co-author of the seminal Lancet report ‘Managing the health effects of climate change' and the Lancet review paper on the health links between Population, Development and Climate Change.
