“The Future of News Over Noise”

America’s role in the world and the health of its democracy are being threatened by the growth of a loud, partisan and unthinking news media, argues Tony Burman.   Instead of informing Americans about the world, much of today’s media has become an echo chamber for conflict and division.  He outlines how this can be turned around before it’s too late.
