NightSide with Dan Rea – Rundown for September 16th, 2021


Wu vs. Essaibi George on a New Police Commissioner. We are down to two candidates for Boston Mayor and Dan has found a way to tell them apart. One says the vacant position of Boston Police Commissioner will be filled after a nationwide search. The other says the new Commissioner will be promoted from within the Boston Police Department. Does one make more sense than the other?

The American Bar Association Goes Woke. The American Bar Association is getting ready to mandate diversity training and affirmative action in all U.S. accredited law schools. The proposal has sparked an angry response from legal scholars across the spectrum who say it is a "disturbing" attempt to "institutionalize dogma" through the accreditation process. Devon Westhill, President and General Counsel for the Center for Equal Opportunity and a Federalist Society legal expert joins Dan to discuss the effect of the new rule on academic freedom and what will happen to schools who don’t wish to comply.

The Nassar Hearings. A handful of star gymnasts testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee this week claiming the FBI badly mishandled the Larry Nassar Investigation. Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney told lawmakers that the FBI’s failure to act quickly allowed a child molester to go free for more than a year and that it “directly allowed Nassar’s abuse to continue.” How did such a failure to act occur within the FBI? Can we really trust the FBI moving forward?
