On the latest “Beat the Press” podcast, we talk about Putin’s media pals in the U.S.; TikTok influencers getting the White House treatment; right-wing lies and libel; that New York Times editorial on free speech; and media outlets that adopt the language of advocacy. Plus our Rants & Raves.

Hosted, as always, by Emily Rooney, with Experience magazine editor Joanna Weiss, media strategist Susie Banikarim and me. Available on Apple and wherever fine podcasts are found.
