Fake news, protests, safe spaces | Confident pluralism with John Inazu

We survey the news of the day: fake news sites exploded during the election and companies like Google and Facebook grapple with how to handle them. Students at the University of Virginia ask university not to quote its founder, Thomas Jefferson.

Then, we talk with John Inazu about what pluralism means, and how we can participate well in a society of diversity. John is the Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law and Religion at Washington University in St. Louis and a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. He is the author of Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving through deep difference.
