This Dissent article makes the case that a boycott shut down Glen Beck.
I find it dubious, but if it’s true – is that something for the left to take pride in? I don’t like boycotts aimed at free speech, but that’s the civil libertarian in me. The First Amendment to me isn’t just Constitutional Law. Yes, I know it only applies to government. But it also represents an ethos – that you fight bad words and ideas with words and ideas of your own and that broad discourse is inherently progressive.
Just my thinking. For what it’s worth.
