WATCH: "New Yorker" writer claims free speech "is being weaponized against the principles in journalism"

While appearing on MSNBC, “New Yorker” writer Steve Coll made the claim that free speech “is being weaponized against the principles of journalism.”

Coll told MSNBC host Kasie Hunt “Those of us in journalism have to come to terms with the fact that free speech, a principle that we hold sacred, is being weaponized against the principles in journalism and what do we do about that.”

He added “as reporters, we kind of march into this war with our facts nobly shouldered as if they were going to win the day and what we’re seeing that is because of the scale of this alternative reality that you’ve been talking about, our facts, our principles, our scientific method–it isn’t enough. So what do we do?”
