The Adversary does not report the news. It thinks about the news. It questions the news and the ideas that permeate it.

On matters of great importance, adults in America converse like children – “converse” being loosely understood – or do not converse at all. This is almost entirely a byproduct of the news and the way it is reported.

For virtually every significant national issue, most Americans believe that there are about 2-3 and only 2-3 acceptable positions available, and that the country is completely torn. This dichotomy is not only contrived and false, but harmful.

The Adversary seeks to broaden the bounds of acceptable ideological discourse – to speak freely and intellectually, and without fear. It aims to engage new ideas and promote open discussion, and to spark genuine and fruitful conversation about politics and culture.
