WATCH: Stacy Washington on Why She Quit After Being Suspended For Her Column Defending the NRA

Stacy Washington is a nationally syndicated radio host who wrote a regular column for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch — until two weeks ago. She wrote a column defending the NRA (now behind a pay wall) and discussing the lack of opinion diversity on certain issues in the media. She was soon notified that she was being suspended for not disclosing that she had previously worked for the NRA. As Stacy explains in the interview below, she has never been paid to work for the NRA — and there are plenty of other reasons why her suspension was unwarranted. She soon decided she’d rather resign, which led to a flood of media giving her a platform to discuss the real meat of her controversial column. She tells the whole story today in our Facebook Live interview, as well as informs us about her work with Project 21 and a few great book suggestions to boot. Enjoy the interview:

‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’

It was just one more segment to fill out the hour, and thereby fill the long 24 hours of Saturday’s cable news on November 2. Or so it seemed.

The Manly Appeal of Ford v Ferrari

There used to be a lot of overlap between what we think of as a Hollywood studio picture (designed to earn money) and an awards movie (designed to fill the trophy case, usually with an accompanying loss of money). Ford v Ferrari is a glorious throwback to the era when big stars did quality movies about actual ... Read More

Impeachment and the Broken Truce

The contradiction at the center of American politics in Anno Domini 2019 is this: The ruling class does not rule.
