Populist Flamethrowers Rock Media

From a story on axios.com by Neal Rothschild and Sara Fischer headlined “Populist flamethrowers rock media”:

Provocateurs from outside traditional party politics are driving a polarizing new strain of American political conversation.

Why it matters: Joe Rogan, Elon Musk, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and others have become some of the biggest cultural flashpoints of the Biden era.

The big picture: During a time of hyper-polarization in politics, these personalities brand themselves “free thinkers” untethered to political dogma, offending core tenets of every political party’s worldview.
