New York University professor Mark Crispin Miller simply asked his students to do research on masking before they believed the narrative of the mainstream media. After all, he was teaching a class called “Mass Persuasion and Propaganda.” The very idea of the class is to foster recognition of the tools of persuasion and propaganda that are a daily part of the students’ society, culture, and news media. For this, one student reported Miller to the administration, demanding, on Twitter, that he be fired. This is not the first time Miller has been called before an NYU board, as you will hear on this episode of “The Midnight Writer News Show.” Miller joins S.T. Patrick to discuss the controversy, the efficacy of masking, the devolution of the left, the failures of the media, and much more.
