After Nathan Robinson wrote a lengthy critique of Glenn Greenwald accusing him of "serving the right" and "spouting dangerous conservative hyperbole against the left," Glenn had a few choice words for him on Twitter. Hating to see friends-of-the-pod fight, we invited them both to a Bad Faith Pod Cancel Court (TM) session, during which they could develop their arguments in full without character limits or character attacks. Topics include whether Glenn's appearances on conservative media implicitly validate right wing narratives about Democrats, how journalists should deal with facts that undermine their own political agendas, Noam Chomsky's climate-based vote-blue-no-matter-whoism, how to and whether to cover detransitioning, accusations of racism against Lee Fang, Glenn's recent choice choice to publish an article making the case for a link between reformist prosecutors and rising crime rates, whether the Senate should be abolished (or preserved because it protects minority interests), whether cancel culture is real, whether corporate appropriation of BLM/Pride means the left has won the culture wars, and more. It's an epic, 2.5 hour journey, and you're going to want to hear every minute.
