We’ll also hear Marty’s conversation with University of Pennsylvania professor of political science and communication, DIANA MUTZ. She joined us to discuss her book In-Your-Face Politics: The Consequences of Uncivil Media, which examines the effect that the increasingly-partisan news media is having on political discourse in America.
