Former Congressman Trey Gowdy speaks with Kim Strassel, member of the editorial board at the Wall Street Journal.

Kim tells Trey about how she first discovered her passion for journalism, she breaks down  the difference between news and editorials and how a newspaper decides what news is worth covering. She explains how young people can ensure the news they are reading is reliable, how newspapers choose conservative and liberal voices for their editorial boards and they breakdown why the New York Times opinion board editor resigning, due to an unpopular op-ed, may damage people’s faith in journalism. 

Later, Trey and Kim discuss her experience covering the Russia investigation in 2016 and the importance of journalists applying the same standard to everyone.
