Author Batya Ungar-Sargon joins us virtually to discuss her book, “Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy.” Long before “fake news” became the calling card of the right, Americans had lost faith in their news media. But lately, the feeling that something is off has become impossible to ignore. That’s because the majority of our mainstream news is no longer just liberal; it’s woke. Today’s newsrooms are propagating radical ideas that were fringe as recently as a decade ago, including antiracism, intersectionality, open borders and critical race theory. How did this come to be?

Batya Ungar-Sargon is the deputy opinion editor of Newsweek. Before that, she was the opinion editor of The Forward, the largest Jewish media outlet in America. She has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Newsweek, The New York Review of Books Daily and other publications. She has appeared numerous times on MSNBC, NBC, “The Brian Lehrer Show,” NPR and at other media outlets. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.
