On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we are discussing coverage of early voting and voter suppression. So far, more than 5.6 million people have voted early. How are the media covering the Republican Party’s strategy to suppress the vote?
We’ll also discuss a New York Times Magazine feature about elderly Americans who are experiencing homelessness during the pandemic. Over the next decade, the number of elderly homeless Americans is projected to triple. Join the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
