US Special: Murdoch dumps Trump, Twitter Chaos & Fenton Bailey’s take on Reality TV

Has Trump been dumped by Murdoch? In this week’s show, host Jake Kanter is joined by Karin Robinson (Edelman) and Alex Hudson (Newsweek) to dissect the US media landscape in the wake of the Midterms.

Also in the programme, we discuss the news that Emma Tucker looks set to swap editing the Sunday Times for the Wall Street Journal – and the BBC preparing to export its brand of impartiality to America. 

Plus we get some special insight on the hot mess that is Twitter with ex-head of PR & Comms, Sam Hodges, sharing his advice for Elon Musk.

And in our deep dive, director and producer Fenton Bailey, shares his take on Reality TV and the gossip from his new book Screen Age.

NOT ONLY THAT… but media quiz we’re playing Social Media Chaos.

A Rethink Audio Production, produced by Phoebe Adler-Ryan with support from Matt Hill.
