Republican Like Me

Ken Stern (Former CEO of NPR) joined The Rubin Report this week, to talk about intolerance of viewpoints and lack of diversity of thought on the left, his journey from left to right, his evolution on the gun control debate, and more. David Rubin deserves credit for holding interviews like this on a pretty consistent basis.

Stern hasn't actually morphed into a Republican, but he's definitely moved away from the Democratic party and can see merit and flaws in both sides, as he says.  It's apparent when you look at his views on climate change, which are basically unchanged for example, that there's still liberalism in his make-up.  But there's progress and we should be happy that progress is actually possible. If an NPR guy can see points from the right, then we are not just banging our heads against the wall.
