The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour: Partisan Perfect Reasoning


NicheNewsStroudCoverThe Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air date: November 12, 2014) – Prof. Scott Stroud and Prof. Natalie Jomini Stroud are two scholars from the University of Texas at Austin who research how extreme partisanship hurts democracy.  Scott Stroud researches and lectures on the intersection between rhetoric, philosophy, and the connections linking artful communication and democracy as explicated by the American pragmatists.  Natalie Stroud wrote Niche News: The Politics of News Choice, (2011).  Her book explores the causes, consequences, and prevalence of partisan selective exposure, and the preference for like-minded political information. She continues to research the idea that people tend to favor information which reinforces preexisting views and avoid contradictory information.
