RealClearRadio Hour – Debating Media Diversity

10 Mar

RCRH horizontal
In dueling podcasts I interview Darrell West from the Brookings Instituion and Mike Gonzalez from the Heritage Foundation asking them whether changes can and should be made in news reporting to reduce political polarization. Who should be the judge of journalistic credibilty and quality, the unguided masses or self-appointed elites?

Listen to Darell West make his case “Nudging News Producers and Consumers Toward More Thoughtful, Less Polarized Discourse” by clicking here and Mike Gonzales offer his rebuttal “The New Contras: Understanding the Left’s Grip On Media” by clicking here.

    fascinating that the Washington Post and the (London) Guardian are now fully insulated (polarized?) from market forces for many years – the Guardian recently transformed itself into a non profit foundation and sold its interest in Auto Trader for nearly a billion.
