Glenn and Corey consider free speech in light of the turmoil caused by the infamous anti-Muslim video. Should religiously motivated anti-gay beliefs be granted a pass? They look back at the political correctness wars of the ’90s. Plus: Should the government fund controversial research on subjects like race and IQ?
