Citations Needed News Brief: How to Respond to Knee-Jerk Bigotry on Live TV

Badass fashion blogger and activist Hoda Katebi joined Citations Needed for an all-access News Brief to discuss her now-infamous WGN television segment. With Hoda, we explore what it means to "sound American," the politics of women's clothing, and why everyone with even a single drop of Iranian blood is expected to be an expert on nuclear energy and international affairs.

And, if you haven't seen it already, please watch Hoda's full appearance on Chicago's WGN9. It's really something to behold.

Citations Needed is a media criticism podcast, hosted by Adam Johnson and Nima Shirazi, political commentators and media analysts working to call bullshit on (usually corporate) media’s ubiquitous reliance on and regurgitation of false and destructive narratives, tropes and stereotypes.
