In the second part of this interview series we talk to Aaron Maté, host for The Real News Network and a contributor to The Nation, about the dangers of pushing the Russiagate narrative without taking into consideration evidentiary standards. In addition Maté identifies the underlying reasons why the media keeps pushing this narrative and also surfaces solutions and alternatives for the viewer.
Aaron Maté is a Brooklyn-based host/producer for The Real News and a contributor to the Nation. He has previously reported and produced for Democracy Now!, Vice, and Al Jazeera; as well as written for the Toronto Star, the Intercept, and Le Monde Diplomatique.
