Former NPR CEO: Liberal Media Bias Is Overwhelming

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

Ken Stern, the former CEO of National Public Radio who changed his party affiliation from Democratic to Independent after he spent a year talking to Republicans around the country for his new book, "Republican Like Me," said Tuesday the liberal media bias is overwhelming and "that it all runs counter to President [Donald] Trump."

"I'm not sort of a big fake news guy," he told Bill Tucker on Newsmax TV during a wide-ranging interview. "I have a lot of respect for the people in NPR; I have a lot respect for the people at the Times and Post, but I think they're in a confirmation-by-us bubble where they share stories and ideas and that it all runs counter to President Trump."

Stern, the president of Palisades Media Ventures, said he decided to escape the "liberal bubble" after speaking with "the smartest people" on the right.

"I went pig hunting in Texas," Stern said. "I went and spent a lot of time in churches, little evangelical churches, mega churches, big evangelical youth conferences. I went to Pikeville, Kentucky, Youngstown, Ohio. I went to NASCAR races, Liberty University, I did a whole lot of things, and I spent a lot of time with the smartest people I could find on the issues that I cared about from the right: John Lott on guns, Arthur Brooks on poverty, just the smartest people who would talk to me. And it was an amazing conversation."

Stern also said attitude polarization, or "how badly we think of the other side has gone through the roof and its crazy."

"Democrats cluster with Democrats, Republicans cluster with Republicans in ways they haven't before," Stern added. "When you don't know the other side, we don't interact with them, we don't talk with them, we don't live with them, it becomes real easy to demonize them."
