In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.
Once upon a time, journalists’ jobs were to communicate facts and inform the public about public affairs. Even in the “yellow journalism” era, the journalism wasn’t about the journalists. This began to change about half a century ago. William F. Buckley, Jr. examines this phenomena of radical chic journalism with Tom Wolfe.
Until next Friday.
