If you all are interested in news media and the state of rhetoric and dialogues in our current state, you must read the book Amusing ourselves to Death by Neil Postman (https://www.amazon.com/Amusing-Ourselves-Death-Discourse-Business/dp/014303653X)
It is a flagrant, extremely well thought out and well put historical understanding of the way our culture fails to engage in thoughtful discourse. It was written in 1985, but feels more relevant than ever. Seriously it’s the best book I’ve read in years.
