WTVF-NASHVILLE — Finding a way to bring or restore civility to our politics has been a topic of discussion for the last few years.
Are we making progress?

Or is our political discord and polarization getting worse on the national, state and local levels?

Are misinformation efforts adding to the problems?

He is the Opinion and Community Engagement Director at THE TENNESSEAN and USA TODAY-TENNESSEE.
