This Thursday: Freedom of Speech and Civil Discourse - Must One Come at the Cost of the Other?
Is the exercise of free speech destroying our ability to communicate with each other about important issues? Is the call for "civil discourse" just a way to shut down those who aren't benefitting from the status quo? From angry bloggers to political attack ads to explosive exchanges at the local coffee shop, something seems to be happening to the way Americans interact with each other. This week on Voices from the Edge we'll explore whether there is a breakdown in civility and whether we can restore it and still preserve our freedom of expression. Join us this Thursday at 7:30 a.m. and let us know how you feel about civil discourse and free speech.
