Carole Cadwalladr, Covid-19, and the fight against collective amnesia

The Kicker

At the start of the pandemic, the UK government’s suppression of data prompted Carole Cadwalladr and her colleagues at All the Citizens to found Independent SAGE, a group of scientists who shadow official government scientists. Now, as the UK hurtles towards a June 21 reopening that now looks unlikely to happen, the group’s findings are more concerning than ever. On this week’s Kicker, Cadwalladr, a feature writer for The Observer, and Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR, discuss what US journalists can learn from the UK’s Covid fight, and how misleading euphoric Covid-19 coverage in the US has become.

SHA' PTA' - Wonderful Women Wednesday Carole Cadwalladr How Social Media Effects Election


This Wonderful Women Wednesday features British Journalist Carole Cadwalladr as she explains in several interviews how the power of social media not only affected the outcome of the 2016 election, but how it  is affecting the 2020 U.S. election.  She talks about how it targets voters and also affects your everyday life.  A recent example is how social media had thousands of fake black Trump supporters.  Yesterday, Twitter halted an unknown number of fake accounts.  I hope you enjoy the narratives, which explains what episodes are about, as well as the graphic attached to each episode, which I diligently search for to match each episode.
