On August 1, Alan Dershowitz will participate in a discussion about civility as part of the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival’s Inwards discussion series.

In a recent appearance on Fox News, a network not known for its civility on which Mr. Dershowitz frequently appears, he compared a comment by Nancy Pelosi about wanting to see Donald Trump in prison rather than impeached to a conversation between Stalin and Beria, the head of the Soviet Union’s secret police who murdered Stalin’s political enemies.

I look forward to hearing Mr. Dershowitz explain how this comparison was civil.
