Episode 172: The Crass-Examination Of Jad Sleiman
WHYY attempts to cancel one of its own. Things do not go well.
Journalists Katie Herzog and Jesse Singal scour the internet for its craziest, silliest, most sociopathic content, part of an obsessive and ill-conceived attempt to extract kernels of meaning and humanity from a landscape of endless raging dumpster fires.
This week on Blocked and Reported, Jesse tells Katie the story of Jad Sleiman, a Muslim/Catholic/Lebanese/American/veteran/reporter/comic who was fired from public radio station WHYY over his jokes.
