Alt-Right or Wrong?

September 1st, 2016

Episode 784 of 884 episodes

Special Relationship #8: Alt-Right or Wrong? This week, Celeste and John try to put the so-called "alt-right" movement into context in the U.S. and abroad. Hillary Clinton's decision to call out this amorphous branch of conservatism and tie it to Donald Trump won accolades from those who deem it a haven for racists and ultra nationalists. But in doing so, did she give the alt-right the spotlight it craved? Helping tackle the topic in guest appearances: Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol and Economist Charlemagne Columnist Tom Nuttall. This episode was produced by Zach Mack and hosted by Celeste Katz of Mic and John Prideaux of The Economist
