The Media’s Obsession With Identity Politics Is Warping Everything

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Author and Washington Examiner commentary writer Eddie Scarry joins Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech and Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss how the corporate media’s obsession with identity politics, especially race, is warping how people think about everything.

“The media has talked about race for a very long time and that’s just something they obsess over,” Scarry said. “What I have seen of late is just this out and out lie…Almost everything the media says about race, the exact opposite is true.”

It’s important, Scarry said, for politicians and others to be ready to call out journalists, celebrities, and others who repeatedly twist narratives to accomplish an agenda.

“There [are] forces in the media and in the culture of Hollywood. Understand that that threat is looming always to call you a racist or to call you a bigot or to call you anti-women, sexist, anti-gay, anti-trans person, whatever,” he explained. “There is an understandable fear to that. However, these people are not elected. [Politicians] are elected for a reason: to be standing up to these forces and say we’re not, you know, I’m going to do the job that the average person can’t do.”
