PT 019: Political Tribalism for Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving which means that family, and awkward politics, are coming to town. And while your cousins pass the potatoes they’ll likely be passing judgement on your choice in candidates too. So to pay homage to the political infighting that comes with Thanksgiving dinner, Reggie and Paul discuss the rise of political tribalism in American politics and media. We make mention of a relatively recent Pew Research Study that finds how divisive the left and right have become over the last 20 years. And then Paul goes over the tactic used by the right to make the left appear “main stream.”

All of that before we get into our last segment, Uncovered where we share one interesting thing we uncovered this week in our reporting.
