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.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
No matter how bananapants your day is, “Make Me Smart” is here to help you through it all— 5 days a week.
It’s never just a one-way conversation. Your questions, reactions, and donations are a vital part of the show. And we’re grateful for every single one.
