Overcrowded, neglected & infected migrants
Mike Papantonio and Trial Lawyer Magazine editor Farron Cousins discuss how the YouTube platform, once revered as a user-based medium for free speech, has been banning or flagging certain videos using an algorithm that hunts for ‘inflammatory’ keywords. But the algorithm’s inability to separate hate speech from social commentary has silenced many users who’d hoped to give their alternative takes on divisive issues, fueling fears of censorship by the tech giant.
Papantonio and Cousins then talk about the House Majority Forward PAC that is funneling tens of millions of dollars to combat the new wave of progressives in Congress, and to ensure the survival of establishment Democrats with deep ties to big money corporations.
Then, VP of the American Immigration Lawyers Association Allen Orr walks us through the squalid conditions of migrant detention centers across the country. Federal mismanagement of healthcare professionals and supplies have led to horrific accounts of neglect within these overcrowded facilities, allowing for the rapid spread of disease like the measles and mumps among migrants and their children.
Plus, legal journalist Mollye Barrows brings to light the rampant issue of sexual assault within our armed forces. While the media has been quick to jump on stories of Harvey Weinstein, Larry Nassar, and Jeffrey Epstein, it seems little thought is given to the toxic culture of sexual abuse among our men and women in uniform.
