From Scott Greer at Daily Caller:
NBC News thinks popular psychologist Jordan Peterson is an “alt-right intellectual.” [Here.]
In a segment that aired Saturday, NBC portrayed Peterson as a dangerous man who seeks to use “psychology, religion and biology to justify the same inequality the Left opposes.”
Throughout the report, the Canadian professor is portrayed as a “favorite figure of the alt-right” — even though the alt-right is never defined. More.
Reality check: Of course alt right is never defined. If it were, even NBC News viewers would realize that Jordan Peterson is not alt right.
Traditional media today may survive by retailing falsehoods of this sort to willing hearers but that amounts to saying that informing the public is no longer really one of their goals.

The alt right, Donald Trump, and – oddly enough – Darwin. Anyone not committed to Darwinian survival of the fittest cannot be ‘alt right’.
