During the interview Shay and Bishop discussed fake news and hype and what distinguishes theories from conspiracy theories. Shay states that certain issues and rhetoric, such as anti-Zionism, receive a protected platform on university campuses around the United States. Shay revealed an anti-Jewish bias in academia and the problems that creates in other areas of society.
Shay gave an in-depth analysis demonstrating that both his alma mater and academia in general have sacrificed academic integrity and trustworthy scholarship in favor of conspiracy theories. Some countries unfriendly to the USA have donated hundreds of millions of dollars to American universities in an attempt to influence policy and curriculum.
The 36-minute interview is remarkable in the scope of issues discussed and must be heard to be appreciated. Listen to the whole interview at: https://soundcloud.com/expertclickradio/scott-shay-author-of-conspiracy-u-a-case-study-interview-on-mark-bishop-radio-show.
