Email a Friend

On this episode of Indivisible, host Brian Lehrer talks to The Washington Post's media columnist Margaret Sullivan about how journalism can recapture its influence from hyperpartisan media, real and fake, and how the Trump administration is changing the norms of how journalists are rewarded for positive coverage.

Then former Attorney General under George W Bush, Judge Alberto Gonzales, unpacks the ways Judge Neil M. Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings and FBI Director James B. Comey’s testimony are challenging the norms in American politics, security, and justice. Gonzales is currently the Dean at Belmont University College of Law and the author of "True Faith and Allegiance: A Story of Service and Sacrifice in War and Peace."
