Jacobin contributor: Calls for NBC not to air Trump townhall won't succeed in 'deplatforming' the president

Philosophy professor and liberal magazine Jacobin contributor Ben Burgis said Thursday that calls for NBC not to air President TrumpDonald John TrumpLatest Mnuchin-Pelosi call produces 'encouraging news on testing' for stimulus package China warns it will detain American nationals following DOJ prosecution of Chinese scholars: report Musician John Fogerty issues cease and desist over Trump use of 'Fortunate Son' MORE’s townhall Thursday evening were not an effective strategy to “deplatform” the president, adding that Trump already has “the biggest megaphone.” 

Burgis explained on Hill.TV’s “Rising” that while some people responded to NBC’s announcement of the townhall by complaining that viewers would have to choose between it and ABC’s townhall with Democratic presidential nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenConservatives seize on New York Post story to push Section 230 reform Trump wishes Harris 'the best' after aide tests positive for COVID-19 Pennsylvania rejects 372K mail-in ballot applications following primary confusion: report MORE, said the network should not be giving Trump a platform at all. 

It almost seems like a hear no evil, see no evil thing, like that they’re going to get people to not go along with whatever Trump is saying... that they’re going to just not give him the platform in the first place, which this seems like a really extreme version of that attempt of kind of forcing a media bubble,” Burgis explained.

Thursday morning, more than 100 Hollywood stars signed onto an open letter to NBC and Comcast executives asking them to run Trump’s townhall either prior to or after Biden’s “so that American voters can have the opportunity to watch both.”
