Plain Talk: Jussie Smollett and Privilege, Plus North Dakota’s New Law Holding Anti-Pipeline Zealots Accountable

On today’s Plain Talk, Jussie Smollett got away with something in Chicago. What does that mean for our notions about privilege in America?

Also, state Senator Janne Myrdal (R-Edinburg) talks about her bill, now sitting on Governor Doug Burgum’s desk, which aims to hold political zealots who vandalize or impede critical infrastructure like pipelines accountable. The ACLU says the bill, if signed, will “chill speech” but Myrdal disagrees saying illegal activities aren’t protected speech.
