Just read your piece with Robert Reich. Full transparency, I’m a recovered msm follower, mostly on the right. I’ve always read WP and others for opposing views. With this attitude in mind. I decided to give a read.

Learned some new things about Mr Reich and his commitment to prepare the next generation. I knew he was also a favorite of the left news outlets, as an Economic Expert, to inform the listeners of how the previous administration was destroying the economy. Not sure how any economist worth their credentials and CV, make a statement such as this with a straight face?? I believe he loses any credibility to speak into any of the pressing issue discussed given the below reply.

"The best way to learn is to talk to somebody who disagrees with you. Because if we stop talking to people who have different views, then how are we ever going to know what we believe?"

And hours after posting the Robert Reich interview, comments are closed.
