Good episode? Give it some love!
“Politically Correct” originated as an insult on the fringes of the American left…and migrated over to the conservative rhetorical arsenal. In an archive edition of Truth Politics and Power, Host Neal Conan asks an expert of political rhetoric…Kathleen Hall Jamieson…about Donald Trump’s use of the term, hears about its origins and evolution from linguist John McWhorter, and talks with comedian Josh Blue, who dances along the PC line every night as part of his stand-up routine. “Politically Correct,” next Truth, Politics and Power.
