Media’s job, How to have civil discourse, Headlines aren’t enough, Milo’s appeal, & Free-thinking colleges
Jun 1, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 7:55 pm
Jesse Watters attended the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island to ask people what was important to them and to see if people knew the 411 on current events.
Writer, producer, and activist, Kira Davis says the media is supposed to be reflective of the public. These days, social media drives what’s important to society. It would be media malpractice for the media to ignore a story that’s gone viral on social media, like the gorilla who was killed to rescue the child who breached the zoo enclosure.
If you start the conversation with “you’re an idiot sheeple” you’ve stopped the convo before it started. Andrew Breitbart would wade into conversations with Liberals to bridge the gap and show that it was OK to have a conversation and walk away without coming to agreement. We call that civil discourse!
Headlines are made to be sensational. And most people only read the headlines.
Conservatives think Liberals are wrong. Liberals think Conservatives are evil. Liberals believe they have the moral high ground and are justified in their actions toward Conservatives.
Milo Yiannopoulos’ appeal is… he just says what he wants to say. He doesn’t care what anyone says or thinks about his opinions.
College is not the place to go to learn to be a free-thinker these days!
