This morning I appeared on WHYY Philadelphia's Radio Times program to talk about the Charlie Hebdo massacre and related free-speech issues, such as decisions by legacy media institutions not to reprint any of the newspaper's cartoons, and whether CH was really just a bunch of racisty racists punching down at people of different races (short answer: really?). My co-panelists were Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple and Philadelphia Inquirer cartoonist Signe Wilkinson. You can now listen to the whole lively conversation at this link.
