About this Episode

Twitter has decided to hire "academics" to look at so-called hate speech on their platform, to help weed it out to give users a more pleasurable experience. Tony Katz looks at what some people mean by hate speech, and explains why going down this rabbit hole ends well for no one.

And Netflix, which has given deals to the Obamas and former Daily Show writer (and Sarah Huckabee Sanders hater) Michelle Wolf, is now airing a documentary about bigot and antisemite Louis Farrakhan made by his son.

Also, Tony needs a dog. But which one?
