Soledad O’Brien: The Media Has Normalized White Supremacy Through Their Coverage Of Trump [VIDEO]

Vox reports:

Appearing on CNN, former anchor Soledad O’Brien appeared to criticize the network and other news outlets for normalizing white supremacy through their coverage of Donald Trump. “Listen, I’ve seen on air white supremacists being interviewed because they are Trump delegates,” O’Brien said. “And they do a five-minute segment — the first minute or so talking about what they believe as white supremacists. So you have normalized that.”

O’Brien later clarified that she is not wading into the question of whether Trump is a racist. Rather, she said that Trump and the media coverage surrounding him are, intentionally or not, “softening the ground for people who are white supremacists, who are white nationalists, who would self-identify that way to feel comfortable with their views being brought into the national discourse to the point where they can do a five-minute segment happily on national television.”
