Former President Bill Clinton was interviewed by CNN’s Piers Morgan last night. Clinton, who has played the part of media critic before, put on that hat again last night, talking about CNN and polarized media.
“I used to worry that CNN was going to lose too many viewers…” Clinton said.
“No fear of that, Mr. President, we are storming ahead,” Morgan interjected.
“You are doing better, you are more entertaining now, which is good,” Clinton responded. “But you became more entertaining without becoming more extreme, which is important.
“People are wired when they see all this conflict, to get into the fray,” he added. “The good news about the media today is that we have more sources of media than ever before. The bad is that all of us, we are more prone to go to the places we already agree with.”
