PBS to launch conservative talk show April 13
PBS, the public television network long accused of having a liberal bias, plans to launch a weekly conservative-oriented talk show April 13.
“In Principle” will feature hosts Michael Gerson and Amy Holmes, who plan to interview two guests each Friday on topics including race, gun control and whether conservatism is the right message for the working class.
“I find when I go around the country that there is actually a hunger for serious, civil dialogue as an alternative to the bitterness of our civic discourse,” said Gerson, a columnist who has been a frequent guest on “PBS NewsHour.”
“We need a place where we can have thoughtful, reasonable, in-depth conversations about politics, policy, culture — you name it — where we’re really talking to each other instead of shouting at each other,” said Holmes, who has appeared on Fox News Channel and worked for Glenn Beck’s “The Blaze.”
