Intelligence Squared debate: Free speech is threatened on campus

Are protesters silencing free speech or just trying to be heard? Is there intolerance on college campuses for opposing or unpopular points of view? In the newest debate from the Intelligence Squared series, the motion is "Free speech is threatened on campus."

YES: Writer and lawyer Wendy Kaminer and Columbia University linguistics professor John McWhorter.

NO: Yale University philosophy professor Jason Stanley and Shaun Harper of the Center for the Study of Race and Equality in Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
