Free Speech In The Age Of Disinformation : Fresh Air 'New York Times Magazine' writer Emily Bazelon talks about how the lies and conspiracy theories sweeping through American media are leading some scholars to question our faith in free speech and in minimal government regulation of speech. Bazelon says false content moves through the Internet unchecked — undermining the political process along the way.

Also, jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews 'El Duelo.'
