Podcast Extra: Interview with Konni Burton of The Texan on reporting straight news

Konni Burton, founder of The Texan

This is a podcast extra interview Konni Burton, founder of The Texan and a former state senator, on her efforts to provide straight news in a world of “advocacy journalism.”

From my perspective the interesting issue is how straight news reporting avoids being classified as “right-wing” or “niche” by the Leftist leaning traditional media. How do outlets such as The Texan begin to be seen by the public as “mainstream?”

Recorded 5 April 2022.
