Debating the Nolan Show (and wider media) and its role in our political discourse

This is a really interesting exchange between Stephen Nolan and Professor Brian Walker this morning which is worth listening to in full.

I have often debated this myself with other people in the media more generally. Are platforms, including Slugger part of the problem in a divided society?

This is something I know people do ask themselves. Am I making the right calls? Am I just pandering in some respects to an instinct?

Is there more we can do? Or is it our role to do anything?

Since it’s Friday, I thought this would be appropriate to throw it open to you for you thoughts.
