Media Roundtable: The GOP’s Post-Election Voter Supression Tactics & FRONTLINE's “American Voices"

Nov 20, 2020

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're discussing Donald Trump and the GOP’s dangerous attack on election integrity. Mother Jones reporter Ari Berman reports that the ultimate plan is to make it even harder to vote, especially in communities of color. 

Later in the show, we'll talk about American Voices: A Nation in Turmoil, a new FRONTLINE documentary that follows Americans as they dealt with the COVID pandemic, responded to George Floyd's killing, and then experienced an intense election. 

Guests:

Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones covering voting rights and author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America

Mike Shum, video journalist and one of the filmmakers behind the new FRONTLINE film, American Voices: A Nation in Turmoil
