Atlantic launching year-long investigation of state of free speech in America

The Atlantic, November 28, 2018, announced it is assessing whether free speech in the U.S. is in trouble and how it is abused. “We need to understand,” said chief editor Jeffrey Goldberg, “why so many factions and individuals across America have traded dissent and useful argument for intolerance and illiberalism.” The reporting project, “The Speech Wars,” will include videos on The Atlantic, com and live events, the first in San Francisco December 5.
