Pressing Matters

5 segments
Is the press biased? And, if so, which way does the slant go— to the left or to the right? Eric Alterman of The Nation, and William Kristol, of The Weekly Standard, square off on the show today, before they are part of a larger panel for the New Yorker Festival this weekend. We’ll also get an explanation of the New York Stock Exchange and the controversy surrounding its current chairman. Plus, a discussion of what’s going on in the fashion world.
