Citations Needed News Brief: #J20 Trial Update and the Political Definitions of 'Violence'

In this all-access Citations Needed News Brief, Adam and I catch up with the latest from the #J20 trial, how the media shaped coverage early in favor of the state, and the racist roots of criminalizing protest.

We are joined by Sam Adler-Bell, who walks us through his excellent new article in Mask Magazine, “It’s a Police State Mentality” — J20 and the Racist Origins of Criminalizing Protest.

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.
