Carlos Manuel Maza (born 1988) is an American video producer who writes, produces, and hosts the Vox series "Strikethrough".
“Everything is broken,” laments Vox correspondent Carlos Maza on this week’s pod. Maza has reason to feel jaded: He’s spent hours—days, even—watching Fox News pundits feed on-air talking points straight to the Oval Office, where President Donald Trump gleefully parrots the network’s daily affirmations without a second thought. In this episode, Maza discusses the cozy relationship between Fox News and the Trump White House, and breaks down the growing media trend of appealing to our inherently tribal impulses.
Host Brian Wesolowski steps away from the microphone (again) for this episode – instead we get to hear from Vox Media video producer Carlos Maza, Stand Up Republic co-founder Mindy Finn, and playwright Jennifer Haley. Maza, Finn, and Haley were speakers at CDT's recent “The Future of Speech Online” event, and were all tasked with thinking about the challenges and opportunities that that the internet creates for speakers. They reflected on what they hope to see in the future.

Devon & Sarah discuss the DOJ's decision to take on affirmative action programs at colleges and universities and the new RAISE Act, aimed at cutting legal immigration into the U.S. in half. They also sit down with Carlos Maza to chat about media coverage in the age of Trump and why comedians maybe the best political commentators we have right now. They also award the Maxine Waters Award in Badassery.
