This man gets it. Being able to criticize your own party is rare and we need more thinking like this man's. Best episode so far. Bari, however, continues to prove she's not as centrist as she claims to be. "So you buy the idea that January 6th came close to being a coup?! Ugh 🙄
I came upon this sham in 1989 when helping my 6 year old niece "read", or more appropriately called word guessing. When I tried to get her to use phonics she had no idea what I was talking about. I can't believe this is still going on 34 years later. I don't agree that this was a result of teachers just not knowing how to teach. I think this more speaks to how uncritical, in the thinking sense, education professors and educators can be. Using phonics is self-evident to any adult who comes across a word that they do not recognize, we sound it out not just guess it. This is even more obvious to anyone trying to learn to read in a foreign language, like Spanish or French, if you know the phonics you can make a very good guess and pronunciation, even without knowing the word. Does anyone see a parallel of how Wokeism spread so quickly in schools of education and subsequent teachers. Don't think, just follow orders.
Thanks so much for this reporting, Emily. I listened to Sold a Story and kept saying, "Yes, yes, yes, this!" And thank you, Bari and Katie, for bringing even more attention to Emily's work. I basically couldn't read until the third grade. My mom got me glasses and enrolled me in an after-school phonics program. I went from a kindergarten to 5th grade reading level in one yr. I made damned sure my kiddos learned to read using phonics and they both could read by kindergarten, but not all parents have this luxury.
I love Honestly and what BW has made of a hard time for her personally and 'liberal values' (please make a roundtable episode around this phrase). The whole civility porn, let's be polite no matter what thing, has limits and I don't think Honestly always hits the right note. Even when BW talks with belligerent American-exceptionalists I learn something. I often learn about myself. But these intelligent roundtable discussions will keep me coming back and next time I'm in a financial position to subscribe, it will be to Honestly and BW's substack that I subscribe first. Thank you team.
I'm from California. I'm Mexican. is this tension between blacks and jewish people an east coast thing? I don't understand why there would even be an issue.
We get it, Mike. In your mind, you crushed it during your tenure.
The answer is journalists

Thank you for being our voice 🤍🕊
This is a great show with valuable insights. Finally a podcast about something I actually have control over. Thank you both.
this is a crazy story
fuck this cunt
Larry Summers didn't always get it right. Ask Brooksley Born.
I love the support of liberalism that she supporting but I'm scared it will fall on death ears due to the poison of populism. in populism if you are againist them you not critical of an idea. you have a hatered of the average person. how they will see this podcast episode is Barry Weiss lost the plot. that's what wrong being principal in liberal ideas make you suspicious and should be seen as evil.
I CAN CONCEDE TO THE FOLLOWING REGARDING THE 2020 ELECTION: TRUMP MAY HAVE NOT WON. HOWEVER, NEITHER DID BIDEN. there are not 2 camps divided into the Sidney Powell machine hacking deniers and the others who vaguely know intuitively that the 2020 wasn't right. i don't even think 2000 mules was mentioned?? that's regretful. there's also the issue of THOUSANDS OF ballots received (and counted) AFTER the deadline in the contested states. Matt branyard has documented thousands of voters who voted in more than one state, thousands of voters who registered after state registration deadlines who are documented as VOTED in the general election, the Arizona audit revealed 30,000 more mail ballots RECEIEVED than were mailed out, the explanation for the Fulton county Georgia video was NOT valid, the table was NOT supposed to have a cloth on it to begin with, THAT'S LIKELY PROHIBITED IN ALL STATES, but IS prohibited IN GEORGIA (and my state of Ohio).. left wing advocacy groups SUED in state courts to reverse rules, in OHIO, our officials fought HARD to keep these groups from putting drop boxes in our state. state executive branches deliberately exceeded their authority beyond reason SPECIFICALLY to tip the scales in their favor. again using Ohio as an example, our sos mailed applications to vote by mail to all voters, IN 2020 ONLY. i didn't like that, but that's SMALL compared to actions taken in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and many left wing states just MAILING BALLOTS to every voter. THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF WILLFUL AND DELIBERATE LAWLESSNESS, not reasonable COVID accommodations. i really like whoever said we need to go back to having elections that got Obama elected. vote by mail is NOT secure, NOR is it a RIGHT. when you vote in person, NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO BE IN THE BOOTH WITH YOU except minor children, or an interpreter. if you mess up ur ballot, a new one is issued on the spot. poll workers are present to assist voters and also protect their franchise. NONE OF THESE PROTECTIONS are present with MAIL BALLOTS. mail ballots need to be heavily restricted. if voters are not compelled to vote in person, then no political action committee EARNED THEIR VOTE. especially if the state mandates early voting. if mail voting is restricted, there will be a major influx in efforts to TRANSPORT VOTERS TO THE POLLS. that's FAIR. but regardless, every state legislature needs to also require early ballots to be scanned UPON RECEIPT, not wait till election day. there was a map pre November 3rd showing when states start scanning (counting) mail ballots. and GUESS which states DONT BEGIN SCANNING MAIL BALLOTS TILL ELECTION DAY (or the day before)?? Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Minnesota, Pennsylvania. voter id laws boosting democrat turnout doesn't demonstrate REBELLION against those laws. it demonstrates CONFIDENCE in election integrity (although I'd say a false sense of security if other more important measures aren't in place). gosh i wish i could be in one of these interviews. i drove to from Ohio to dc for all 3 stop the steal rallies, including January 6th. for me, it wasn't about TRUMP (i did not vote trump in the 2016 primary). i went to January 6th to encourage representatives to objected to the electoral count for an investigation into the election. the reality was that I KNEW THAT INVESTIGATION wouldn't have overturned the election. but i WANTED A REDRESS FOR OUR GRIEVANCE over the election.
To answer your question starting at 1:22:45 as the 'new right' being unpatriotic and anti Americanism, the answer is ABSOLUTELY. in fact, the rhetoric has devolved SOOOOOOO low, and VERY FAMILIAR , as I've read the EXACT SAME TALKING POINTS in countless anti west, anti American subtitles of speeches delivered by Vladimir Putin year after year, decade after decade now. and it is LITERALLY PAINFUL having to sound like the left wing media.
Andrew Shulz is this generations G.O.A.T!!!
46:40 So basically his argument against trans rights and identity is that he's scared that it will "confuse" little kids and get rid of queerness. Lmao I appreciate what this guy has fought for in the past but does he realize how ironic and outdated his words are. 😂 Didn't homophobes used to make the same argument that gayness would "confuse" kids and get rid of heteros. Being trans (like being gay) is a possibility to ponder but is not being forced on anyone.
