Bret Stephens: Trump Election Should Be ‘Come To Jesus Moment’ For The Media, “What Have We Done?”

NBC’s Chuck Todd interviews self-proclaimed conservative Bret Stephens of the New York Times about the dying art of disagreement and how it has permeated American politics.

“The New York Times where I now work, woke up to the fact we need to have a richer conversation with a much more diverse set of voices,” Stephens said.

CHUCK TODD: I think a lot of people would point to cable television as well and talk radio as well. I’ll give you one example, and some may fire at me for this, but I don’t think it was healthy we had a cable news channel run by a former political operative.

BRET STEPHENS, NEW YORK TIMES: Well, look, I think a lot of it began exactly with that. And I have to say, if there’s a silver lining to the Trump election that I think a lot of news media, at least certainly the New York Times where I now work, woke up to the fact we need to have a richer conversation with a much more diverse set of voices.

I was just listening to your panel just now with Hugh Hewitt. And that models exactly the kinds of disagreements and conversations we need to have. So if the Trump election is a kind of come to Jesus moment for a lot of the media, saying to themselves, what have we done? As it may be, by the way, also for Facebook, then at least something good would have come out of last November.
