Joshua Bleiberg

In case you missed it this past Sunday, Darrell West joined Bill Frezza on the Real Clear Radio Hour to discuss his recent paper Nudging News Producers and Consumers Toward More Thoughtful, Less Polarized Discourse.  In the next segment on the show Mike Gonzalez the vice president of communications at the Heritage Foundation addressed some of his concerns that he outlined in his column for the Federalist The New Contras: Understanding The Left’s Grip On Media.  See the videos below for the radio segments from both West and Frezza.
