The dangers of 'protected opinion'

A major lawsuit brought by Fox News host John Stossel against Meta (formerly known as Facebook) has brought Facebook’s cadre of so-called “fact checkers” in the social media giant’s employ. RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports. Then investigative journalist Ben Swann and Reese Everson of the BLUSH Project share their insights. They also weigh in on UK cosmetics retailer Lush’s conspicuous withdrawal from social media across all platforms, as well as one woman’s astonishment that TikTok “knew she was gay’ before she even knew it herself.

Cathleen Watters, host of “the Family Industrial Complex,” joins Scottie Nell Hughes to share her insights on the unfolding trial of disgraced socialite and alleged human trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, accused of procuring victims for the infamous Jeffrey Epstein. She also comments on Prince Andrew’s continuing legal problems for alleged abuses while in Epstein’s orbit.

Employees of Amazon and a number of smaller companies say they were forced to work during a tornado emergency and denied shelter from fatal storms that swept the South in recent days. How much is too much to ask of working people during severe storms? How do we hold businesses accountable when they put profits over people? Mike Murphy, mayor of Lexington, Minnesota and Tobin Smith of Transformity Research share their expertise.
