Summary: The right has rejected core institutions and norms, and in the process pushed the media to adjust and in doing so to normalize the descent into tribalism. We’ve been pushed so far that we’re bumping up against core principles. Can the media remain neutral toward a political movement that rejects norms and institutions?
Relevance: Lays out the existential threat to a pillar of democracy.
Action: Support real journalism financially and in social media.
