How Will the Next President Govern?


Luke Russert, who left his position as an NBC News anchor in July, shares his expertise with Matt Malone, S.J., and Tim Reidy. In this week's podcast they talk about the responsibility of the media during election season and the debates, and envision how the next president—be it Donald J. Trump or Hillary Clinton—will lead the country.

I would have preferred Mr Senator Bernie Sanders.

I am surprised that the subject of Media Concentration of ownership was not raised (aka convergence)

Seems that in America today, a Billionaire could write one personal cheque and acquire more reach than Citizen Kane (re: Orson Welles Movie loosely based upon the Yellow Journalist W.R. Hearst). And let's face it, the money is excellent for the top talking heads!

Last Media Report I read stated that of the top 100 Newspapers, NIL support Trump-seems to defy statistical variances...

Great interview Ft Matt. The laughter and banter were delightful compared to the screaming on most talking heads shows. He is so young and yet handles himself during the interview quite well and eloquently. His father was one of the great ones in the news media. We wish Luke well.

What incredible insight for such a dynamic young man. Luke, in another 15 years, maybe consider taking a stab at political office yourself...or at least be somewhere in the decision-making body. Loved your Dad - both parents should be extremely proud of your endeavors. BTW, I LOVE BC - but only when they do not play UND - I have a husband and two sons that have a total of six sheepskins from that place in Indiana.
