Free is Bad / Implications of the Capitol Invasion

Mickey’s first guest is veteran technology entrepreneur John Marshall. In his new book “Free is Bad,” he contends that internet users’ expectation that everything online should be provided free has been a disservice to themselves and to society, because it makes advertisers, not internet users, the real customers of the tech firms. In the second half of the show, History and Media Studies lecturer Nolan Higdon returns to the program for a discussion about what the January 6 mob attack on the U.S. Capitol means for the media and for the country.

John Marshall has 40 years’ experience in the high-technology industry, including starting several companies; his specialty is advertising technology. The web site for his new book is www.freeisbad.com. Nolan Higdon teaches at California State University, East Bay and is a frequent contributor to Project Censored. His latest book, “The Anatomy of Fake News,” is published by the University of California Press.
