The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 421 of the In The Tank Podcast. The New York Times‘ recent admission that they “relied too heavily on claims by Hamas” in regards to the Gaza hospital bombing is telling. It further reveals how broken our media system is. Worse, however, is the effect our media is having on social cohesion, leading to a fragmentation of society. This is contributing to a reality where the left and right are living in increasingly distant universes where common ground is exceedingly hard to find. What does this mean for our country and are there any solutions to the problem?
