The State of Journalism: A Conversation with Bob Schieffer

The journalist notes what he thinks can calm the cacophony echoing across America.

The Donald Trump presidency kept the media on its toes with a constant deluge of information. Bob Schieffer ’59, veteran journalist, talks to Kristie Bunton, dean of TCU’s Bob Schieffer College of Communication about what may be ahead during Joe Biden’s term. “We may be even more divided now than we were in 2016,” said Schieffer. “It’s kind of like Joe Biden has been elected president of two very different countries: one very conservative, one not so much.”
