Police Immunity, Regulating Business, Covering Trump’s Lies, How We Perceive Migrants
In this listener comment episode, Mike and Jay address the following listener questions:Should police be given the level of qualified immunity from prosecution they currently receive? Will a recent federal court ruling change anything? We need to keep an eye on regulators, but doesn’t Jay think we also need to watch companies? How do we keep companies honest, and working in the best interest of consumers and the public? How can the media balance respect for the office of the presidency with fair coverage of presidential untruths? How do our perceptions of migrants shape our attitudes toward immigration policy?
