Jesse Walker, Popehat, and More on Sirius XM Insight from 9-12 AM ET

Matt Welch talks on channel 121 about Charlottesville, free speech, fake news, Madonna, and nuclear war

|

This morning I am sitting in the guest-host chair for Stand UP! with Pete Dominick on Sirius XM Insight (channel 121) from 9-12 am ET. Charlottesville and aftermath, plus President Donald Trump's remarkable press conference last night, will be the main topics. Guests are scheduled to include:

* Beloved Reason Books Editor Jesse Walker, author of the always-relevant The United States of Paranoia: A Conspiracy Theory. He will talk about parallels to the Greensboro massacre.

* Also-beloved free speech lawyer Ken "Popehat" White, who will talk about the many free-speech implications of neo-Nazis and Antifa thugs fighting in the streets.

* Journalist Marc Ambinder, who will talk about how close we came to nuclear war in the early 1980s.

* Movie/TV critic Carina Chocano, author of the brand spanking new You Play the Girl: On Playboy Bunnies, Stepford Wives, Train Wrecks, & Other Mixed Messages. She will talk about her book, from the jumping-off point of today being Madonna's 58th birthday.

* National Public Radio media correspondent David Folkenflik, who will talk about the bizarre triangle between the White House, Fox News, and the Seth Rich conspiracy.

It's gonna be a great show; please call in at 1-877-974-7487.

  1. This morning I am sitting in the guest-host chair for Stand UP! with Pete Dominick…

    This is the most blatant case of false advertising since my suit against the movie The Neverending Story.

  2. What, no pot, ass-sex or Mexicans?

  3. I saw something about spanking and playboy bunnies, but it turned out to not be as interesting as I hoped.

  4. Also-beloved free speech lawyer Ken “Popehat” White, who will talk about the many free-speech implications of neo-Nazis and Antifa thugs fighting in the streets.

    More like Dopehat, right fellas?

  5. David Folkenflik

    That’s got to be a made up name.

  6. For Popehat if he is reading the comments.

    I read your essay. Here is an excerpt:
    ” Literal Nazis marched the streets of an American city, calling out Jews and blacks and gays, wielding everything from torches to clubs and shields to rifles, offering Nazi slogans and Nazi salutes. Some of their number attacked counter-protesters, and one of them murdered a counter-protester and attempted to murder many others.”

    All true from the news I’ve heard. You did not describe or mention the actions of any “counter-protesters”. Is that because none of them were armed, armored, or shielded, thus not worth mentioning? Is it because none of them attacked anyone, thus not worth mentioning? None of them initiated violence? None of them attempted to prevent the marchers from exercising their rights?

    If that is the case, can you clarify how you know this? That would completely change my mind on the entire confrontation.
    If that is not the case, don’t you think that is irresponsible reporting and analysis? Sort of a lie by omission.

    Thanks. Always been a big fan.
