In his new book, Broken News: Why the Media Rage Machine Divides America and How to Fight Back, political columnist, author, and former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt reveals how the news industry profits from fostering political partisanship and sensationalizing reports. Stirewalt analyzes media’s history to explain this current shift to “rage revenue,” advises how to repair the field, and equips media consumers with skills to seek the truth within skewed reports. Please join CEI for a discussion on the consequences of intentionally reporting unbalanced information and how to restore media objectivity with author Chris Stirewalt, in conversation with Kent Lassman.
According to Stirewalt, “A news business that makes its money by promoting political dysfunction and sharpening sectarian hatreds is a serious threat to our liberty, peace, and prosperity.”
“One of America’s most experienced and exemplary journalists has written an unsparing analysis of the dreadful consequences — for journalism and the nation — of “how the news lost a race to the bottom with itself.” Readers of Stirewalt’s indispensable, mind-opening book-as-warning should remember this: There actually is no such thing as rock bottom.”―George F. Will, columnist for The Washington Post
