Briahna speaks with Batya Ungar-Sargon, Deputy Opinion Editor of Newsweek & author of a provocative new book titled Bad News: How Woke Media is Undermining Democracy. A self-described "former woke," Batya is now skeptical of left media culture that feels increasingly elite & distant from journalisms working class roots. But while Brie & Batya agree on mainstream media's deficits, they disagree on the extent to which "wokeness" itself is the problem. They debate intersectionality, defund the police, free college, AOC, left immigration policy, & more. We've been saying this a lot recently, but this is a good one. Thank you for supporting Bad Faith and enabling us to do substantive, in person interviews like this one.
