What is the post-truth era? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the so-called post-truth age and how it’s strange that we could have gone from an era where progressives told us there was no such thing as truth to one where we move past it. They are trying to determine for us who is telling the truth and who is not. It’s a battle for free speech and one that we must win.
Politically correct ideologies are starting to rack up casualties on campuses, including professors. Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, recounts his battle against social justice warriors whose tactics, they say, encourage tolerance but are in fact themselves intolerant.
Senator Mark Warner recently wrote a memo indicating that the government should intervene and regulate online press. Elizabeth Nolan Brown (www.reason.com), Associate Editor at Reason Magazine discusses how government control of the internet and regulation of social media giants could play out in the future.
On July 19, President Trump called the fake news media the real enemy of the people. Writer and photographer Henry Scanlon (www.henryscanlon.com) joins us to look at how the press purposefully misleads the public to further their many narratives and how it’s possible to be against the fake news media and still be for a free press.
John’s quote of the week:
“This generation never learned how to think. And as a result, the only way that is left to enforce their ideas is brute force. We’re seeing the brute force in physical assaults but what is really troubling is the fact that they will not debate, they will not meet, and if any of their people cross the line to try to establish a bridge, they too will be attacked.”
In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss several examples of media double standards involving stories on Islamic topics such as terror attacks and court proceedings.
