Apparently Samantha Bee’s segment last week on migrant children being separated from their parents was permanently scrubbed and will not be coming back. At the beginning of this week’s show she made a brief statement regarding the controversy (and there’s an interesting discussion between Chris Hayes and Rebecca Traister: here). That intro was then followed by this segment with an update on the situation.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
