British actor Stephen Fry’s controversial opinion on university censorship, the prospective impeachment of Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, and a German comedian being prosecuted for insulting a foreign official are the topics three for this week.
To begin we look at Fry, who has been rebuked for his attack on the “self-pity” felt by victims of molestation who want to impose trigger warnings on university life.
We then turn to Rousseff, who has been embroiled in a nationwide corruption scandal alongside many of her political peers, and could now face impeachment under a recent vote.
Lastly we look at the case of Jan Boehmermann, a German comedian who read out an obscene poem attacking Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish president, and now faces prosecution under an aged law.
