Ken Stern, the former CEO of National Public Radio who changed his party affiliation from Democratic to Independent after he spent a year talking to Republicans around the country for his new book, "Republican Like Me," said Tuesday the liberal media bias is overwhelming and "that it all runs counter to President [Donald] Trump."
"I'm not sort of a big fake news guy," he told Bill Tucker on Newsmax TV during a wide-ranging interview. "I have a lot of respect for the people in NPR; I have a lot respect for the people at the Times and Post, but I think they're in a confirmation-by-us bubble where they share stories and ideas and that it all runs counter to President Trump."
"When you don't know the other side, we don't interact with them, we don't talk with them, we don't live with them, it becomes real easy to demonize them."
Stern, the president of Palisades Media Ventures, said he decided to escape the "liberal bubble" after speaking with "the smartest people" on the right.
