House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler thought it would be a good idea to have John Dean testify about Watergate. And John Dean was happy to oblige. After all, he may be a convicted felon but he’s no chicken – or Rosemary Woods

However, unfortunately for Chairman Nadler, the media spent most of the day covering a helicopter crash in New York City.

Jack Shafer in Politico says, “free speech took a whacking Thursday.” He says there are better ways to deal with the likes of Alex Jones.

Some on the left want to protect college students from speech and ideas that offend them. But some on the same side wish to punch a MAGA hat wearing 16 year old boy in the face.
