Alabama Senate race, net neutrality, Jerusalem

By on December 14, 2017

This week on The Square Circle, we discuss these issues:

  • Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones pulled off an upset this week, defeating embattled former state Supreme Court judge Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls when he was in his 30s. It was a slim victory for Jones, but Moore has still not conceded.
  • The Federal Communications Commission, as expected, voted to roll back Obama-era regulations on net neutrality. Is this the end of the Internet as we know it?
  • The world is still reacting to President Trump’s decision last week to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy there. Protests erupted in the Palestinian territories, but the Administration insists that the decision simply acknowledges reality and will advance the peace process.

Gregory Clay of GDClay.com, Stephenie Foster of Smash Strategies, and Leif Larson of Craft DC discuss these issues and more.
