“The best cure for hatred and ignorance”

It ain't fake news.

Instead of making ourselves smart about news stories this week, we’re taking a broader look at The News. It’s truly not just navel gazing to say our highly polarized marketplace of ideas and current political strife may have something to do with the media we consume. We’ll talk about the economics of reporting, online echo chambers and whether there’s a model for news that brings us together rather than driving us further apart. Hear Molly’s conversation with HuffPost Editor-in-Chief Lydia Polgreen, who’s thinking a lot about that question as she remakes the pioneering news site.
