American journalism is under attack. In this age of intense polarization, major news outlets face pressure to push politically correct narratives under the guise of objective, unbiased reporting. Has the Fourth Estate fallen prey to a rising pressure to be woke?
Batya Ungar-Sargon, deputy opinion editor at Newsweek, says yes. In her forthcoming book, “Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy” (Encounter Books, 2021), she chronicles the radical shift of American journalism in recent years and what it means for our democracy as a whole.
Please join us for a discussion on the current state of American media, featuring AEI’s Samuel J. Abrams and Thomas Chatterton Williams, Virginia Heffernan of Wired, and Dr. Ungar-Sargon.
