Charles Lane is an editorial writer for The Washington Post and author of the new book, “Freedom’s Detective: The Secret Service, the Ku Klux Klan and the Man Who Masterminded America‚Äôs First War on Terror.” Lane joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss post Civil War American history, the disruption of traditional news media, and the role of opinion pages in politics.

“What went wrong ultimately with America in the 19th century was that there was an overlap between partisanship, ideology, economic self interest and region,” Lane said. “They created such a division in the country that you had essentially a couple of tribes that couldn’t trust each other…it’s particularly corrosive when you’re talking about institutions that are secret like the FBI and CIA.”
