Outrage on the Rise

Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Richard Dorment, David A. Love

Americans are mad! According to a recent Esquire/NBC News poll, half of our country’s population is angrier than they were a year ago. There are many fuels to these fires – average citizens consider the American dream to be a thing of the past, others are frustrated by political dysfunction. Recent events including high-profile police brutality incidents have people up in arms. Today on Radio Times, we’ll discuss the increased rage in the US and the different sources that have caused it. We’ll be joined by RICHARD DORMENT, senior editor at Esquire, who will discuss the poll that they conducted, and by political commentator DAVID A. LOVE.
