CNN Guest Asks Brian Stelter if They’re in ‘Woke Media’ Right Now
UNGAR-SARGON: "I don't know. You tell me, Brian, are we on woke media right now? Again, let's rely on sociologists, okay? These same sociologists trawled the archives of 'New York Times', 'The Washington Post', even 'The Wall Street Journal', NPR, CNN, and what they found was starting around 2011-2012, an absolute skyrocketing of the use of woke words like white privilege or marginalization or oppression. These companies started using these words when they went digital as a way of increasing their traffic and it created this feedback loop with the affluent white readership that they were courting to where it shifted public opinion."
