How cable news went all-in on politics

The advent of the 24-hour news cycle has changed politics as we know it. Kathryn Cramer Brownell, associate professor of history at Purdue University, joins guest host John McCaa to discuss the rise of cable news, which she argues decentralized traditional media and led to today’s fractured political landscape. Her book is “24/7 Politics: Cable Television and the Fragmenting of America from Watergate to Fox News.”
