Two Outstanding Journalists and the Year Ahead

Last evening, I watched a rebroadcast of Chris Hayes’s recent interview of Rachael Maddow before an audience at Town Hall, in New York. The subject was our country’s vulnerability to falling under authoritarian rule, which is also the subject of Maddow’s new book, Prequel. Maddow warned that 2024 will be a weird and hard year. and that if it doesn’t go well, every year after that for the foreseeable future will be a weird and hard year.
