Katherine Mangu-Ward, editor in chief of Reason magazine, discusses free speech issues in campaign finance, on college campuses, and Facebooks board of directors.
In regards to Hillary Clintons beliefs on free speech, Mangu-Ward said what Clinton says in public, is what she really believes about the first amendment. She started her career saying lets put labels on music, she said. She wanted to use the power of the state to shut down people who were being mean.
Bre Payton, staff writer at The Federalist, later joins the program to discuss the recent history of rigged or stolen elections. When Donald Trump says the election is rigged, I think it implies there is this larger, globalist conspiracy at work, which we dont have any evidence that that is occurring at all, she said. But there are so many examples of vulnerabilities and issues with our electoral system.
