A more united United States of America: Sally Kohn's liberal views on Fox News & Today | TED Blog

A more united United States of America: Sally Kohn's liberal views on Fox News & Today | TED Blog | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? |

Sally Kohn is both liberal and a lesbian -- and she worked at FOX News, contributing to the conservative network for three years. During that time, sparred with some of the most conservative minds on television.  In this TED talk, she gives a bold idea for pushing past political polarization.

She feels strongly that the only way to address the issues facing our country is to sit down and have a real conversation — no more talking past each other or walking out of press conferences.  

She comments:  If people come up to me on the street, it’s: ” I don’t agree with you but I really like you. You seem really cool, you seem fun, you seem nice.” And to me, that’s huge. That’s 90% of the way there. As opposed to, “Oh you’re another one of those crazy, angry [people].”

Her current articles for 2014 are listed on The Daily Beast. 

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This 2013 article has lessons for our 2014 news and social media, which has all kinds of filter bubbles built into it.  For example, have your heard more about July 2014 Miley Cyrus' tattoo of her dog lately than about the recent July 4th gun violence in Chicago?  82 people were injured, of that 14 killed, yet few news organizations covered it in prime time compared to a star's tattoo.

If Sally was a token liberal at FOX news, her message is still getting out, via TED's blog, as well as her record of exposure at FOX.
