NightSide - Is Due Process At Risk On College Campuses?

2/7/2017
More
In recent years, there has been a passionate national conversation about the prevalence of rape on college campuses and how to address both preventative and punitive concerns. But has this effort caused an overreaction that could endanger a student’s right to due process? Stuart Taylor, co-author of Campus Rape Frenzy, checks in with Dan to talk about this issue and why some are becoming concerned over this well-intentioned fight. We all remember the Duke lacrosse story, but is that incident...

NightSide - Greatest Comeback Ever

2/7/2017
More
Last night, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots rallied from a twenty-five point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. The comeback win was the largest comeback in Super Bowl history by far (beating the previous record of ten points) and will go down as one of the greatest wins in Boston sports history. But was it the greatest? Has Tom Brady ended the debate over whether he is the best quarterback of all time?

NightSide - Pelosi In The Hot Seat

2/2/2017
More
Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader for the Democrats in the House of Representatives, did a town hall event last night on CNN. During the broadcast, she faced a tough question about sanctuary cities from a mother whose son was killed “by an illegal” back in 2010. Can the Democrats have a future as a political party if they don’t change their tune on immigration and sanctuary cities?

NightSide - Should Illegal Immigrants From Cuba Be Treated Differently?

2/2/2017
More
President Obama tried to open a new chapter on U.S.-Cuba relations by lifting travel and financial restrictions and traveling to the island nation himself during his second term as President. In the last week of his Presidency, he also repealed the “wet foot dry foot” policy, which had previously established that Cubans who actually made it to U.S. soil would not be returned to Cuba. Ira Mehlman, media director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, joins Dan to explain how he...

NightSide - State Legislators Give Themselves A Raise

2/2/2017
More
There has been a lot of criticism over the pay raise bill that Massachusetts legislators recently passed. The measure increases lawmakers’ salaries by almost fifty percent. Though Governor Baker vetoed the legislation, the Massachusetts House of Representatives and Senate both voted today to override that veto. Are you surprised that state legislators would vote for such a large raise for themselves? Do any of those voting yes risk their political future, or will this be long forgotten by...

NightSide - Should Democrats Fight Gorsuch’s Confirmation?

2/1/2017
More
On one hand, many Democrats are still furious that Republicans managed to reject President Obama’s nominee without holding a hearing, never mind a vote, for almost an entire year. But on the other, the party simply does not have the numbers to stop Republicans from confirming Gorsuch anyway. Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel for the Judicial Crisis Network, checks in with Dan to give her analysis of the pick, and why she thinks Democrats should be satisfied.

2/1/2017
More
Since the election in November, there has been a wide range of analysis of what a Trump administration might mean for America. But what about our international relationships? Trump has been very critical when discussing China in the past, but how will that manifest now that he has officially moved into the White House? Greg Stoller, Senior Lecturer at Boston University, just returned from China. He sits down with Dan to talk about the Chinese expectations for President Trump, and how our...

NightSide - Supreme Court Fallout

2/1/2017
More
Donald Trump announced his nominee for the Supreme Court would be Neil Gorsuch. The announcement came after days of debate over the travel ban that Trump signed last Friday, and presents an interesting choice for Democrats. It already seems like Republicans are willing to use the so-called “nuclear option” to get Gorsuch confirmed, so any fight put up by Democrats is unlikely to prevent his confirmation. Boston College Law Professor Kari Hong joins Dan in the NightSide studio to give her...

NightSide - And The Nomination Goes To… Part 1

1/31/2017
More
President Donald Trump will announce his pick to replace the late Justice Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. The court has been shorthanded since Justice Scalia passed away in February of last year.

NightSide - Terrible Idea From The Party Of Obstruction Part 2

1/31/2017
More
The Democrats have become a party that seems to stand for obstruction above all else. With vocal party leaders attending protests around the country and holding press conferences to undermine the sitting President, it has been pretty obvious over the first ten days of President Trump’s administration that the left has no intention of giving Trump a chance. Today, Democrats in Washington boycotted confirmation hearings for Steven Mnuchin and Tom Price, and left Jeff Sessions’ confirmation...

NightSide - Reactions To The Travel Ban Part 3

President Trump made headlines last Friday when he signed an Executive Order that banned people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from traveling to the United States, including those coming here as refugees. So far, the new policy has sparked protests around the country, and caused some foreign leaders to speak out against the move. But is all of the pushback a small price to pay in the name of safety? Immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco joins Dan in the NightSide studio to talk...

NightSide - Why Do They Do It?

There are few who have it better in the U.S. than wealthy, high-powered executives. So why would someone who seemingly has everything risk it all to commit white-collar crime? Harvard Business Professor Eugene Soltes, author of Why They Do It: Inside the Mind of the White-Collar Criminal, sits down with Dan to talk about what might compel someone to take such huge risks with seemingly so little to gain.

President Trump has officially started the process of building the wall on our southern border. Though he said throughout the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall, many are wondering if it will be the U.S. taxpayers that end up footing the bill. President Trump said today that he spoke with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and the call was “very friendly.” The White House released a statement stating, "The two had a productive and constructive call regarding the bilateral...
