Last night on Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer, The Nation’s Ilyse Hogue and former US Labor Secretary Robert Reich took up the problem of false equivalence in current political discourse. Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s comparison of attacks against private equity to attacks against the Reverend Jeremiah Wright is “an egregious example,” said Hogue, but such equivalences happen “every single day.”

For more, read Hogue’s “Et Tu, Cory Booker? The Pathology of False Equivalence.”
