Episode 38: Chris Malone returns to talk the future of news media
<p>We did it, folks! We elected a reality TV star to the presidency — a reality TV star who hates the news media, isn't a fan of facts, and brings a litany of followers who don't really care about either of those things. We talk about what it means to be a journalist in this environment, and what it means to be a news consumer.</p> <p>We wandered through a whole bunch of other stuff, too.
