ITT Sound Off: A White Man’s Diary

Maria and guest co-host Terrell Jermaine Starr, journalist and host of the Black Diplomats podcast, discuss the investigation into former President Donald Trump, including the FBI’s search at his Mar-a-Lago home and some of the mainstream media coverage on the raid. They also get into the Biden administration’s announcement that they are ending the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols, or Remain in Mexico, policy.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • “Garland’s address was succinct, to the point, and did what needed to be done before he left the stage,” writes Hayes Brown in this opinion piece for MSNBC.

  • “The Post’s decision to privilege Republican lies and false accusations of the supposed politicization of the DOJ also undermines other reporting from the same newspaper,” writes Eric Kleefeld for Media Matters.

  • For BuzFeed News, Adolfo Flores reports on the Biden Administration’s plan to wind down the “Remain in Mexico” policy and the devastating impact it has had on migrants and refugees.
