Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer Throws a Flag on Media Bias

57 minutes · September 9, 2022

On the 21st anniversary of 9/11, former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer shares his memories of the day and explains why he has retired his traditional Twitter timeline of the experience.

In recent years, Ari argues that our discourse has become binary, with right or left taking sides, with the middle disappearing, particularly in the media. It’s a thesis he lays out in new book -- Suppression, Deception, Snobbery and Bias: Why the Press Gets So Much Wrong -- And Just Doesn’t Care.
