The outspoken conservative commentator and podcast host Ben Shapiro has a new show on the horizon where he will attempt to ‘methodically discredit left-wing myths’ in less than 15 minutes.
The new show will be called Debunked and will feature the 37-year-old attempting to call foul on a wide range of topics that he has deemed ‘myths’ promoted by left-wing activists and figures, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Judging by the trailer for the show some of these arguments will include climate change, systematic racism and Covid-19. Axios also reports that Shapiro will also look at policing and minimum wage as other topics, as he talks his viewers through “all of the supporting research to debunk arguments made by the left, and expose every fallacy the left throws at you.”
Shapiro has made a career for himself thanks to viral clips shared from his podcast on the conservative website The Daily Wire, which he is the editor of, where he often takes a contrarian view on current affairs. Some of these have including criticising LGBTQ+ content in films, denouncing the lyrics in Cardi B songs and first lady Jill Biden using the title ‘Dr.’
He now looks to be taking these views to a more TV show orientated format and has given himself the challenge of each week attempting to debunk these so-called ‘myths’ in just 15 minutes or less, which sounds like quite a task.
As always with Shapiro, news of his new venture has not been greeted with much enthusiasm given his history with some of the aforementioned topics.
This show is part of the Daily Wire’s move to more subscription-based content which will include shows, documentaries and even feature-length movies. The website recently announced that they will be working on a new movie with the disgraced former Star Wars actor Gina Carano, who was fired from the Disney+ show The Mandalorian earlier this month after she compared American conservatives to the persecution of Jewish people in Nazi Germany.
Debunked is set to start this Friday and we dare say we’ll be seeing plenty of it on our social media timelines in the weeks to come.
