The Underground Episode 8: Why Do Mainstream Journalists Hate Free Speech

The Underground Episode 8: Why Do Mainstream Journalists Hate Free Speech

In this episode Sasha, Nesim and Rozali look at a Tech Crunch article about Substack’s recent acquisition of the platform Letter, and the critiques of Substack for allowing certain views to be expressed on the site. They discuss the way free speech is portrayed as a dirty concept, something which militants use to hate monger, and how little or no evidence is provided for claims such as accusations of transphobia.
