This week on The Assignment, Audie turns to two insiders from each media ecosystem to discuss how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are using the press to reshape their narrative. We hear from Los Angeles Times culture critic Mary McNamara and Newsweek’s Chief Royal Correspondent Jack Royston.

  1. They didn’t trade anything Being the owner of a company is very different and smart Reminds me of Desi Lucy!

  2. The couple don’t want the limelight no more. But the attention getters can’t help themselves.

  3. Why is CNN randomly uploading so many episodes of this podcast? Is this the content that was scheduled to be on CNN+?

    1. @Georgie 400k viewers compare to Fox’s 1.4 million. I guess CNN needs to change up the platform somehow lol

    2. CNN can’t even give their content away lol. Nobody watches it. I certainly didn’t. I’m just here for the comments.

  4. Hi can my school get a shout out my school is call Washington Junior high School and I can I get a shout my self pls my name is heaven!

  5. So this is the best Chris Licht can do? Instead of talking about east palestine. Or the Norfolk Southern Board of directors. The Ukraine war, Iraq 20 years later and how they are worse off. This is what you choose to spend your time pushing.

    This is pathetic.
