EXCLUSIVE: Ezra Levant and Noam Chomsky clash on freedom of speech (Part one of three)

Rebel Staff
 

In an exclusive interview, I debate progressive superstar Noam Chomsky on topics ranging from the Left's embrace (and then abandonment) of freedom of speech, to what you're allegedly not allowed to say about the wars in Vietnam and Iraq.

First, Professor Chomsky explains what the U.S. First Amendment really protects (and what it doesn't.)

Dismissing campus speech codes and political correctness as "an exaggeration" and "a marginal phenomenon," Chomsky claims that state and corporate control over speech is a much more prevalent and dangerous phenomenon -- citing his own career as an example.

Watch as I use that very example to undermine Chomsky's own argument, and stay tuned to hear his counter-intuitive take on the media's portrayal of America at war.

(And stay tuned for Part Two of our conversation, about U.S. foreign policy.)
