Left, Right & Center

The mainstream media – on both sides – is laughably tribal right now.

Political hacks and Z List celebrities spout off attack after attack against “the other side” more often than not, and civil debate has gone out the window. When all you hear is “FAKE NEWS” and “RUSSIAN BOT” on one side or the other, it’s impossible to reach across the aisle and see one another’s position.

Left, Right, and Center looks to bridge that gap and rebuild these kinds of conversations.

Hosts (Josh Barro – Center, Rich Lowry – Right, and a guest host – Left) debate the past week’s news in the world of US politics without things ever getting out of hand. Most of each hour-long episode (published once a week) is spent debating the news, but at the end of each episode, all three hosts have a chance to plead their case directly to the audience.

It’s a handy way to get their points across, and it’s been able to bring a little bit of civility back into the national discourse. You won’t find a lot of political bloodsports here, just friends and professionals debating their positions respectfully.
