In “Sh*tshow,” Detroit gonzo journalist Charlie LeDuff tackles race, politics, and media
Charlie LeDuff has been busy. Over the last few years, he’s hung out at the Mexican border waiting for undocumented immigrants to be ferried across the Rio Grande on a jet ski. He's chatted up conspiracy theorists at the Cliven Bundy standoff with the federal government, and he's tried not to get hit by rubber bullets or worse in Ferguson, Missouri.
LeDuff, a native Detroiter and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, joined Stateside to talk about his new book, Sh*tshow, The Country’s Collapsing…and the Ratings are Great, which explores the intersecting crises around race, politics, and media in the United States.
