How I Got Over: Soledad O’Brien on Race, Politics and the Media

Monday, March 27, 2017

(Soledad O'Brien)

During the 2016 election, award-winning journalist and writer Soledad O’Brien charged cable news and media companies of profiting off hate speech normalized by then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign. What made for good TV ratings did not make for good journalism. 

WNYC editor Rebecca Carroll hosts an unconventional conversation with O’Brien about her new political magazine show "Matter of Fact" and how black and brown journalists and media makers can deliver balanced coverage with President Trump in the White House for the next four years.
