What are some of the key elements that you’re trying to convey?
It does seem like a very important thing as I don’t think people don’t really question sources of their news information. It seems that it’s essential to almost try to convey at a young age that media takes many forms and we don’t necessarily certainly take it at face value.
Can you speak about media literacy? What form does that take in the schools? What are the key performance and message they are trying to get out?
There have been a lot of studies showing that the polarization of politics in America is greater than it’s been at any time in modern history.
That may be, because it’s not happening, on a legislative basis, at least. There’s a sense among people to try to find some commonalities, but I’m not sure that’s necessarily happening within Congress.
There’s anger, but not necessarily results at this point, and an inability of the two parties to really speak to one another.
This is a broad question. I don’t intend it as a leading question. What’s your sense of the state of democracy in the United States right now, and what’s happening with Trump and the resistance to him?
