Listen now (64 mins) | On the podcast, I speak with Greg Lukianoff, co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind and CEO of the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE)
Great podcast! I loved The Coddling of the American Mind and look forward to reading his next book. I pray that as a society we get through these times retaining our free speech. Thank you for keeping these important conversations going!
Journalism is fake free speech. Journalism pretends to be unbiased and about freedom but really they are incredibly biased, territorial, and think of themselves as the guardians of democracy and ironically, want to control the conversation. This is not a conspiracy theory. I learned it from reading journalism textbooks that they teach in their own curriculum as well as academic publications and books (yes people wrote things down before the internet!) about the history of journalism. Journalism has not changed its methods since the 1880s.
