Are today’s editorials undermining democracy? In his final regular editorial for the New York Times, Bruni answers yes. Bruni tells us that today’s editorials, even a few of his own, often are too strident and reinforce readers’ prejudices rather than stimulating thought.




Dean’s List publishes information and opinion on politics, culture, the arts and life. Civility is a requirement. We cherish diversity, empathy, honesty, and kindness.
