In his “In the National Interest” podcast, Kent Harrington talks with Michael Lewan, whose four decades of experience on Capitol Hill and on the presidential campaign trail provide unique insights into why the answer to those questions should matter to Americans today. Whether its Joe Biden trying to legislate multi-trillion-dollar economic recovery packages or Xi Jinping bums-rushing the Chinese Communist Party’s Politburo in the direction he wants them to go, the political process and the job of governing a country are inseparable.  So is the role of the media in influencing how politics and public policy come together.  How does the media affect the interplay of politics and the business of governing?  Perhaps more important, from Facebook posts designed to pamper your prejudices to flatscreens featuring the news 24/7, is its pervasiveness in the 21st Century fundamentally reshaping both?
