Trust in government continues to fall to record lows, and politics are dividing our country more than ever – the political center is essentially gone. The blame, says political analyst John Noonan, lies with the Internet and the consumption of news and information that simply validates our beliefs. It’s not a Republican issue or a Democrat issue, he argues, it affects everyone. Noonan shares what political operatives like him do to win and divide us – and what we can do about it.

John Noonan is former national security advisor to Governors Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. Noonan spent over half a decade working in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is the veteran of two presidential campaigns. He is a former Policy Director of the Foreign Policy Initiative, a Washington based think-tank committed to a strong American role in world affairs. A former Captain and U.S. Air Force nuclear launch officer, Noonan was assigned to the 90th Missile Operations Group as a weapon system instructor and missile combat crew commander.
