Today's media landscape is plagued with division. This week, host Elisa is joined by Chris Stirewalt, former Fox News political editor and author of Broken News: Why the Media Rage Machine Divides America and How to Fight Back. Chris joins the cast to discuss how contemporary news outlets are drifting further into sensationalism and "rage revenue" and away from the civic-minded duty of keeping audiences informed. How can good journalism thrive in a sea of clickbait and extreme viewpoints? How does this business model endanger our national security? And are Americans still willing to read and hear thoughts that challenge their own viewpoints?
