Host Adam Ragusea explains why there hasn't been a new episode of The Pub for a few weeks and previews what's coming up after the holidays.

Dec 3, 2016

Does an interview with a founder of the "alt-right" movement on public media give a platform to hate? Or is it shining a disinfecting light on a movement that has multiplied in the shadows?

Public media veteran Rekha Murthy says public media do need to do stories about “alt-right” figures who now have a seat in the incoming Trump administration, but some probably shouldn’t get a full-on interview.

This week on The Pub, we contemplate public media’s proper role in the coming Trump presidency. Host Adam Ragusea offers a counter-argument to a policy of replacing the term “alt-right” with “white nationalism” 

Also, Andrew Ramsammy lays out a vision for how public broadcasters should value and pursue diversity in the Trump era. Ramsammy has recently founded a consultancy focusing on diversity in public media. We ask him: Who does public media need to try to include now? The people who elected Trump, or the people imperiled by his policies and rhetoric?
