#Newsfail is definitely not your grandmotherâs comedic-memoir-slash-political-manifesto. From page one (in a preface titled, âIn Which the Authors Interview Ralph Nader in the Bathtubâ), comedian Jamie Kilstein and journalist Allison Kilkenny pledge to give you the news like youâve never gotten it before.
On issues ranging from feminism to gun control, climate change to class war, foreign policy to net neutrality, they tell you how the mainstream media gets it left, right, and utterly, unforgivably, irresponsibly wrongâthink Noam Chomsky as channeled by Fred and Carrie from Portlandia. #Newsfail is all this, plus the story of Allison and Jamieâs own DIY foray into independent media via their podcast, Citizen Radio, which has featured guests such as Jeremy Scahill, Sarah Silverman, Glenn Greenwald, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, and been downloaded millions of times by people all over the world.
In #Newsfail, they âmake a strong case that a greater range of voices needs to be part of the national media discussion, including theirsâ (Kirkus Reviews). Their mission is truth-telling above brainwashing. All you have to do is listen.
About: A âfeisty, literate, and uncompromisingâ (Publishers Weekly) primer on the most urgent issues of our day, from the creators and co-hosts of Citizen Radio, a listener-supported show whose slogan is âindependent radio that wonât lead you to war.
