The Scramble Has Some Questions About Our New Trumpian Reality

Nov 21, 2016

Colin is back, and we've got some questions, and we're guessing you do too.

Like, for instance, "In covering President-elect Trump and his presidency, should the traditional news media treat this like any other transition, and like any other run-of-the-mill administration?"

And, as an example, "Are there any checks in place to keep the U.S. President from starting a nuclear war?"

And finally, are people exaggerating the severity of the threat we now face?

GUESTS:

  • Sarah Kendzior - An op-ed columnist for The Globe and Mail, and the US correspondent for the Dutch news outlet The Correspondent
  • Margaret Sullivan - The Washington Post's media columnist.
  • Alex Wellerstein - A science historian who specializes in the history of nuclear weapons and nuclear secrecy
