In the middle of this ongoing crisis – the question of who to trust, how to find truth, censorship and free speech are coming centre stage.
When two people share the same goals, they can disagree – even strongly disagree – and still have a productive discussion about how to reach those shared objectives. As comedian and author Owen Benjamin explains, the problem with America today is we no longer share the same goals, and that’s tearing us apart.
A half-century after his death, Martin Luther King, Jr. is as revered as ever. But have we been following his example, or merely paying lip service to his ideas? Jason Riley, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, weighs in.

A host of the usual suspect journalists, liberal activists, and all the same pundits who called this election wrong from the very beginning are now having a collective freakout about President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Breitbart News co-founder Steve Bannon as chief strategist and senior counselor. These usual suspects say all Americans, but especially racial minorities and Jews, should be alarmed that a man they believe is a racist quasi-leader of the so-called “alt right” movement has been put into such an influential position.

Sunday, when morning television is wall-to-wall news programs, Benghazigate was a no-show, except on Fox, where Chris Wallace made this emerging scandal the focus of his Sunday panel.
My friend, Joel Pollak, over at Breitbart.com, reports on a media blackout.
