Instead of arguing about media coverage and posturing about partisan reactions, maybe focus on sanctions and refugee policy?
Abaca Press/SalamPix/Abaca/Sipa USA/NewscomToday’s Reason Podcast, which features myself, Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Peter Suderman, begins with a discussion about the dramatic protests in Iran: their significance, the context, the vast amount that we don’t know, the bad Twitter takes, the America-centric focus, and what Washington should do specifically about what few existing policies directly affect the situation in Tehran and throughout the Islamic Republic.
We also argue about legal (but heavily regulated) weed in California and elsewhere; President Donald Trump’s recent comments on North Korea, Pakistan, and DACA; and whether cheesy ’80s movies about nuclear holocaust (think The Day After and Testament) are worth rewatching.
