I speak professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU, Mark Crispin Miller, about how we define propaganda, the use of the phrases “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” in journalism, media outlet as propaganda machine, Trump as polarizer, one student’s pushback against critical thinking, the censorship trifecta, crybullying, modern eugenics, the heresy of criticizing transgender theory, election rigging, the aggressive vaccine rollout, where to get real news, and maintaining sanity.
