Getting to the truth of any issue has become close to impossible today, especially if you listen to the mainstream news or the fact checkers on social media. Political correctness is killing us – sometimes literally. First up on the program this new year is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. Medical journal articles are now being censored if they don't conform to the official narrative about the virus and the vaccines. Dr. Risch looks at vaccine efficacy, when Covid could be over, and weighs in on the effectiveness of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.

Supposed fact checkers on social media are censoring posts that don't conform to the official narrative on any issue. Facebook just admitted in court that those same fact checkers are only offering opinions. Back with us this week is Founder and Publisher of American Thinker Thomas Lifson (americanthinker.com). This admission by Facebook not only reopens the publisher vs platform debate in regards to Section 230, but it also renders fact checkers useless. He also discusses inflation and the ineptness of the current administration.

In our final example of how political correctness is killing us, we look at the whole debate surrounding the vaccines and covid and the use and misuse of statistics. Wrapping out the New Year show this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Definitions of words or phrases – like 'vaccinated' – are important because statistics will mean nothing if different studies have different definitions for the same word. The politically correct elites will use whatever study bolsters their narrative and eschew ones that don't.

Facebook has admitted in court that their fact checkers are only putting out their opinion, not fact. What are the implications of that statement? Back with us today is Founder and Publisher of American Thinker, Thomas Lifson (americanthinker.com). He shows that Facebook has now admitted that they are a publisher – which ignites the Section 230 debate again – and that 'fact' checking is meaningless. Yet, the media and leftists will swear by it. He also discusses both inflation and the ineptitude of the current administration, and why the poor suffer the most under both.

Double feature on today's podcast. First up, we've seen the showdown coming for some time – Big Tech versus Free Speech. Will the Constitution's First Amendment protection survive or will Silicon Valley become the center for speech in the U.S.? Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) joins us today to tackle this issue. He and John look at Section 230, manipulation of search results, and the government's plan to use Big Tech firms to do what they cannot.

Next up is Lea Patterson (firstliberty.org), Counsel with First Liberty. She discusses the religious freedom case in Maine that was argued before the Supreme Court yesterday. Parents should not be excluded from providing their children with opportunities just because they choose to enroll them in a religious school.
