Talking Heads: Media and Politics

Aaron Bastani and James Butler discuss the British press, media during the election, and the relationship between media, truth and politics. How do left-wing thinkers address the media without conspiracy theory? Does media always ‘recuperate’ radical politics? Is the media innately hostile to left-wing ideas?

This month Novara Media are running a ‘subsraiser’, so we can expand our capacity to bring you the stories and analysis that really matter. We can’t run on volunteer labour forever. If we increase monthly subscriptions by £2k, we’d be able to pay everyone for at least one day a month on a living wage. Subscribe to Novara Media for the equivalent of an hour of your wage a month, and we promise to keep working round the clock to build a new media for a different politics. #NovaraLivingWage
