One in 11 Americans Have Impulsive Anger Issues and Guns; Digby on Weinstein and False Equivalence

October 9, 2017 @ 1:08 pm

This week, we begin with Jeffrey Swanson, a professor of Psychiatry at Duke University, who will talk about an eye-raising study that he and his colleagues published in 2015 which looked at the number of Americans who display signs of impulsive anger and have ready access to a firearm. There was a subgroup among them that should be especially alarming. 

 

Then we'll be joined by Heather "Digby" Parton to talk about the media's obsessive desire to draw parallels between Harvey Weinstein, a sleazy Democratic donor, and Donald Trump, a sleazy reality-TV host whom the Republican party nominated to run for president of the United States and who is now far more popular among the party's rank-and-file than most elected officials who didn't confess to being serial sexual harrassers.  

 

Finally, we'll be joined by Yochai Benkler, co-director of the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, to discuss his study of the media landscape -- including social media -- which shaped the 2016 presidential election.
