Allison reports on the D.C. Women’s March and how some in the media are fetishizing peaceful protests (even while others praise black bloc direct action, like punching Richard Spencer in the face), Punching Nazis is always okay, Trump’s “American carnage” inauguration speech, White House press secretary Sean Spicer accuses media of underselling Trump’s inauguration crowd numbers, which Kellyanne Conway describes as “alternative facts,” Lessons from Putin’s Russia for living in Trump’s America, 25,000 hit NYC streets for anti-Trump rally and Trump supporters and opponents clash outside “DeploraBall” in downtown D.C., while the media largely ignores that an anti-fascist protesters was shot during protests of Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at UW.
