“Welcome to The Nation magazine’s 150th birthday party,” John Nichols said to the crowd at the Tucson Festival of Books this past month in Arizona. In this panel conversation, which aired on CSPAN2’s BookTV, Nichols joined The Nation’s Katha Pollitt, Lee Fang of The Intercept, and Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-Arizona) to honor what Nichols characterized as “150 years of rabblerousing, agitating and objecting and calling out the ugly abuses of corporate power and embracing the beauty of movements for social and economic justice.”

Discussing the ever-changing media landscape Congressman Grijalva praised The Nation for adding a “broader depth” to the political discourse, which is “so important for our democracy.”
