'Cotto/Gottfried': 'Woke' author Andrew Doyle, Titania McGrath's creator, on the casualties of social justice warfare

Social justice is all the rage in certain quarters nowadays -- and these quarters tend to make their presence well-known on social media. How much activism for a socially just world is, in fact, a vehicle for control over the lives of others, though? This is an important question which many social justice activists seek to avoid come hell or high water. Comedian Andrew Doyle is not among them. He grew so aggravated with folks who preach social betterment, yet wind up forcing their views down the throats of others, that he created a Twitter account and persona -- 'Titania McGrath' -- to mock this constituency. This Twitter presence grew so popular that 'Titania' recently published 'her' own book, 'Woke: A Guide to Social Justice.' On this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried,' Doyle explains why he chose to write the book, why it is relevant to what is going on nowadays, and much more.
