  1. […] Robin Pogrebin is a reporter at the New York Times Culture Desk and co-authored the book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation which outlines what a mistake was made in his appointment. For Pogrebin and her co-author, it was the desire to get more facts and the truth that was obscured by the pre-conceptions of people on both sides of the political spectrum during the Kavanaugh hearings. The investigation took an honest look at Kavanaugh’s life from childhood to the moment he appeared in the public eye and, ultimately, disappointed both sides in that they neither exonerated nor fully convicted him of the accusations leveled against him. Upon its release, people on both sides weaponized the book before having read it, speaking very much to the wider situation we find ourselves in where there is no middle ground and minds are made up and unchangeable, sometimes based on very little. To hear more about this, and Pogrebin’s work at the NYT Culture Desk, listen to the complete interview. […]
