FEATURING ADAM JOHNSON – Why did Donald Trump win the election on November 8th? Attempts to answer that question have consumed so many political pundits and media commentators. Surprisingly among the reasons being bandied about is the idea that diversity and multiculturalism might have been to blame. In other words, according to my guest Adam Johnson, “Lashing Out at ‘Identity Politics,’ Pundits Blame Trump on Those Most Vulnerable to Trump.” That’s the title of Johnson’s new piece for the media watchdog group, Fairnessand Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR).
