Van Jones’ “Beyond The Messy Truth”

Listen 48:59

VAN JONES, CNN political contributor, host and longtime social activist, has been trying to build bridges across party lines. He’s even traveled across the country to speak with Americans about the issues that matter to them most. In his new book, Beyond the Messy TruthHow We Came Apart, How We Come Together, Jones argues that both Democrats and Republicans have let down the American people for a long time even before President Donald Trump. In this hour, Marty talks with Jones about how both parties should take responsibility for the nation’s polarizing politics and how the nation can move forward and focus on real solutions which will bring about meaningful change.
