Leonard Lopate Weekend: Jon Ronson, Zach Anner, and Shaka Senghor

Jon Ronson investigates how the Internet and social media platforms like Twitter have changed the nature of public humiliation, and how it can be used as a form of social control. Comedian and YouTube series host Zach Anner, who was born with cerebral palsy, rose Internet fame after being “discovered” by Oprah. Shaka Senghor talks about being charged with second-degree murder at nineteen, then sentenced to 19 years in prison in 1991. He spent seven of those years in solitary confinement.
