Heather Hendershot talked about her book Open to Debate: How William F. Buckley Put Liberal America on the Firing Line, in which she looks at William F. Buckley’s television program, “Firing Line,” which debuted in 1966 and featured the National Review founder in conversation with intellectual adversaries to debate the social and political issues of the day. In her book, the author argues that Mr. Buckley’s foray from print into television allowed him to further arguments outside of conservative circles and cast him as an early pundit.
