Episode 15 – Rightwing Media – Good For What Ailes Ya

Ailes
Quote by a man who barely knows Roger Ailes

The boys are back, well… not Phil. So we brought in Jon, an avid conservative media consumer (especially Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity) to help us break down just why these monsters are so popular. We also give a (not so) brief history of Roger Ailes and his role in the creation of the modern Republican party and the conservative wing of the media. Without Phil, Sly gets carte blanche to rip apart Capitalism. Darryl thinks all liberals are communists (we are). Ryan’s just a Jon Oliver copy. Just one more episode after this till Phil comes back!

Some topics discussed:

  • Roger Ailes
  • Richard Nixon
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • Trump as the ultimate Foxy Grandpa
  • Sinclair’s Media buyout
  • Mambo No 5
  • Greg Gianforte
  • Conservative Advertisers
  • And much more
