Episode details

How did media and journalism become the domain of the elite? Why does liberal media only represent the ideologies, politics, and narratives of  a tiny fraction of the population? What happened to reporting for the  masses?   

I spoke with Batya Ungar-Sargon — deputy opinion editor at Newsweek and author of the book you all must read immediately, "Bad News: How Woke  Media Is Undermining Democracy" — about these issues and more.

This is one of my favorite conversations ever! I so appreciated connecting to Batya, and think her book and analysis is incredibly important. Please do pick up a copy of Bad News if you can!
