Media Roundtable: The deepening political crisis in Venezuela & the Mueller investigation

Feb 7, 2019

  On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the deepening political, and economic crisis in Venezuela. More than 3 million people have left the country because of the crumbling economy, violence,  lack of food and severe shortages of medicine.

How are the media covering Washington’s regime change strategy in Venezuela, and the country’s refugee crisis? We will also talk about the latest developments on the Mueller investigation. Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Renee Kemp, and you.
