ScheerPost’s own Max Jones and Diego Ramos are back with another video interview except this time it is under the official name for their show: Journalists for Sale. We hope the irony isn’t lost on our readers and we are excited to bring this weekly interview show to the site and our other platforms.

This week, Jones and Ramos talk about the state of the media with none other than esteemed ScheerPost columnist Patrick Lawrence. Inspired by Lawrence’s insightful and substantial piece, “Journalists-on-Journalists Crime,” the trio engages in a stimulating discussion, discussing Tucker Carlson’s Fox News ousting, the media’s handling of leaker Jack Teixeira and Matt Taibbi’s Mehdi Hasan appearance.
Max Jones is a staff writer and video producer for ScheerPost. A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Southern California, where he studied communication and screenwriting, he is following his post-USC plans to be an independent screenwriter/filmmaker and, at ScheerPost, produce video journalism that challenges institutions of power.
